I had to wrap my horses right hind leg last night when he came up lame in his pasture. We think he got kicked in the hock area, it was tender and swelling slightly. After getting the advice of my much more knowledgeable friend, we wrapped his leg and put him in his stall overnight.
He was much better this morning, but I left the wrap on while I turned him out in his own field. He's very good about wraps and usually leaves them alone.
Anyways, the question - should I take his wrap off and leave it off I f he's walking better? He's still tender and probably will be bruised for a few days, but does it need to stay wrapped?
