Flash clipped himself during lunging today and got a small gash on his cornet band (I think that's the right term- where the hair meets the hoof?). It started bleeding a bit, so I cleaned it up and treated it with blu-kote. Do wounds in this area require certain care? I know this is where the hoof grows from and am wondering if the cut can cause any lasting damage to the hoof? Its about a half inch long, and doesn't appear very deep.
I'm mostly just wondering if I treat this the same as other minor cuts, or if it requires further treatment?
