My grey appendix horse has hock sores. I have been putting an antiseptic ointment on them, although they are dry. One sore looks bloody, but dry. Neither sore looks infected. I have invested in some hock boots, does anyone else have any feedback on them? My horse is turned out several hours a day in rocky terrian, and is in his stall with woodchip bedding the rest of the time we are not working with him.
We arte tryiong a stronger antibitoitic ointment right now, even though they seem to not be infected (this was recommeneded by a equine masseage therapist). I have read duct tape works well too, not sure if with or without ointment? I am new to owning a horse .....advice is welcome!!
