Liniment Questions

Ok, so i bought some absorbine original liniment for my horse bc he occasionally has leg issues. So here are my questions:
1. Do you wrap the leg once you have the liniment on?
2. What kind of wraps do you use?

NO, I think it even says on the bottle not to wrap, could cause burns.

absorbine is the best liniment! but it is fire, put it on your hand and wait 5 minutes, it's hot! you only wrap poultice, which is different.

It's always something interesting....

If you want something to wrap with - try Ice Tite. I think it's also an Absorbine product, and as it is a poultice, it is designed for wrapping and pulling heat out of the lower leg. Generally liniments are used for muscle soreness (Correct me if I'm wrong though).
