Because it's so muddy in the field, my gelding got scratches. Grr... Now he has to live in the small riding arena because it's fairly dry in there. He does get a buddy, though. But of course my horse is going to whinny and pace because he's the stressed out type. He keeps cutting and chipping his legs and hooves, and yesterday I found he chipped his coronary band.
Should I put some kind of boots on him when he's outside? My friend says I should put splint boots and bell boots on him. Any tips?
