I have been working with this horse for a month or so now, and I just got him yesterday, (he belonged to someone else for that time as I was trying him out) anyways, around a month or so ago he went through the window in the arena with his front legs (plastic!) and caught his one leg on the tin/metal wall coming back through. Long story short his leg got all cut up. The cuts going down the leg (from knee to fetlock) are all scabbed up, dark thick scabs, and look like their doing well. The cuts below the fetlock to the hoof is more like one large scrape and it is white? Its not like a thick scab, its white in color and the back of the leg is all dirty, with some dirt "ball" like things stuck to it, iv been able to brush some of them off. I'm not sure if this white stuff is normal? Its soft and like a covering, or maybe just skin? I'm not real sure! My quesstion is, should I just leave all this alone or should I get some warm water and a sponge and try clean off all the mud/dirt on the back of his leg? Should I be putting anything on this or just let it do its job? I can post pictures hopefully Wednesday if anyone wants.
