We did a Spyder Wrap on his hock when we poulticed it, but my Vet highly discouraged it.
I just spoke with her today on the phone, and she said no turn out. She is worried that he'll be overly excited when he gets put into the paddock and reinjur himself thorugh excited movement, and we'll be back at square one.
She said 2 more weeks of stall rest, and walking him as much as possible throughout the day's.
So we'll just keep things as is, and he'll get re-asessed in 2 weeks.
My Vet said he should be back to riding and on full turn out in 2 weeks. She wants us to take steps forward and not backward, so that is why she discouraged turn out for an hour for "just in case".
And I agree, I would far wrather play it safe than to jeapordize his hock at this point. It's been almost 2 weeks now, so another 2 weeks should be playing it safe eh?
