    I was sitting in the house last night and I felt terrible, I checked on him at dinner time but it was already getting dim- he seemed fine, but I just felt... bad about it.
    Went out today he's acting normally, if a little more "cuddly" than usual (he thinks he's a lap horse), eating and drinking normally, obviously not as energetic/willing to run, but that's understandable. The swelling hasn't gone down, but it hasn't gotten worse either? And he's not confined and the moisture from the grass is actually keeping it very clean, but I'm still worried. He's definitely not the type of horse that likes to be stalled, but I might through him in the barn/paddock later on today.
    I'm kicking myself now for never learning how to wrap a leg or deal with these types of things. We've had horses for years and we've never had any major incidences.
    We're cleaning it daily with warm water, heading out to the pharmacy (you gotta love the fact that there's an "animal pharmacy" practically around the corner). I want to get some sort of wrap or guaze or something to protect it... but I know that wrapping wrong can cause more damage than good, I wish there was a 'fool proof' bandage- any suggestions there?
    Some cuts wrapping is better, it can help it heal from the inside out and keep it from scabbing on top and then the inside does not heal

    I know that...
    But wrapping incorrectly can potentially cause more damage than it can good, especially around a joint.
