Thank you all very much. This is getting complicated! =P
Wouldn't wrapping it do the same thing as actual boots would? I really, really need to avoid spending money if I can, you know how the economy is. But if it's a lot better I can try to save up the money!
I'll keep the suggestions of medicines and such in mind, but I'm not sure how much it would help even to use the best medicine in the world since it gets re-cut daily. Would it really make a difference? Will it heal significantly in one day?
What I really need to know is whether there is a realistic way to make it so that he can be turned out with nothing on and not cut himself or is he going to have this problem forever?
I feel like a bad mom letting him scrape himself up every day! I'm used to some pretty bad cuts and scrapes because my pony used to live with other horses and was at the bottom of the chain. He'd have ten new ones on that butt every day, I swear. But these are some pretty nasty looking cuts. My barn owner freaked out a little bit when she saw them =(
