How to prevent cuts?
I have an Arabian gelding, 6 yo, he's a baby, not had much work on him before, and I'm starting to find nicks and cuts on his rear, interior posterns and cannons, and considering how he's still tripping over himself sometimes, I'm guessing it's from his hooves cutting him. Regular splint boots would protect his cannons from this, but the two nicks I found today are on the postern, right above the coronet, and I don't think regular splint boots would protect him from this. Does anyone have any ideas? Or am I wrong about splint boots protecting that area?
