POLL: Does Underwoods work, any other suggestions?

So, our mare Dash attacked the fence a month ago and sliced the back of her pastern above the coronary band. Had the vet out and it couldn't be stiched, got her a tetanus shot and have been using neosporin and wound coat, which has always worked for me. But as soon as it gets about 90% healed up, looking nice and closed, no proud flesh, she busts it back open when she trots or canters to her feed. I've been trying to limit her movement, yet it just keeps happening. Any tips? I know an injury like this takes time, have delt with this before with an over reaching well trimmed mare on pasture. This wound just won't go away. I've kept a strict eye on it, medicate it twice a day, make sure it's not infected, swollen, etc, have bandaged it but that dosen't keep it together and it needs to dry out and heal up. Now using Underwoods on it, does it work for you or do you know of something better!?!?

Heck, that sounds very familiar. I just cleaned/kept putting ointment on mine twice/day. Couldn't find any other ways to deal with it.

I have seen underwoods do some AMAZING things ... I would sure be using it at this point

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)
