Hock sores and duct tape?
Ok, so my horse gets hock sores, no matter how deep the bedding, what kind of bedding, dirt floor, wood floor, rubber mats, inside, outside......I'm not there at night to watch what's he's doing in his stall - but we have deciphered that he moves around quite a bit and pushes all his (deep) shavings up the walls and must rub his hocks getting up and down.......
Someone suggested hock socks.....I haven't read many great reviews on these things......then someone told me you can use duct tape??
Has anyone used duct tape? If so, how did it work out? I prefer not to spend $150 on special hock boots just to have them fall apart or sore up my horse!
