Oh I tried everything! Darn standing wrap wouldn't stay up. I would wrap the leg, then throw on the quilt and standing wrap, higher than it should be, started the wrap at the bottom, hoping it wouldn't loosen too much, and I tried a few times to wrap criss-cross over his hock with vet wrap over the standing wrap to try and hold it up. Nope! I got to a point where it was minimal slippage, but, still annoying.

Oh, he also hates to have that leg wrapped now, even though the wound is gone.. big baby! He holds it up for me haha.

This is going to be a long thread. It already is, but I can definitely see it getting much, much longer.

Xxdanioo he ignores his likit thing. He just likes to use the string to scratch behind his ear -.-; He likes the rock salt better.

So Bandage change today! Here's the wound, looking a bit angry to my eyes but new tissue is good.

First, licking the wall while getting his bandage changed. He's so mouthy.


The wound Before cleaning


After it's been flushed out with saline



Stryder helps hold things


And getting a bandage change is SO HARD, he has to take a nap. Though it kind of looks like I'm choking him and he's going OMGZ. I promise I just had his itch spot.




My elasticon tape hasn't come in yet so atm we're using duct tape along the top to try to keep the bandage up. <.< It fixes everything.

Just like Mr. Ed.... "Uh, Wilbur, while my leg is healing, how about moving a T.V. Set in the barn, buddy boy?" :)

He is adorable and the wound looks to be healing quickly Hope he continues to get better!
When my mare cut her knee open last year(somehow she got cast in her stall and cut it on the water bucket per/barn owner) I used manuka honey on the wound and it worked great.

The fact that the wound is bleeding is a good thing, it shows good circulation😄😄😄!! That's great.

Walter ignored his likit as well. Gave it to another horse lol. His NAG Bag kept him occupied.

The wound looks great! Filling in nicely. :)
