Careful with the nitro sticks. They tend to cause scaring in dogs/cats and people (idk about horses never used them on equine). Although I have to agree they are pretty fantastic for bleeding areas that need to stop at a equine vet I worked at we used a razer blade (like you would shave with) freshen up the proud flesh/wound but I for the life of me cannot remember what else we did it was a long time ago! :-/ seemed to work but I hated doing it looked so painful!

Hi my Mare hurt her self on the fence just above the knee I just cleaned it with clean water and also used betadine solution then wraped it and removed the bandage after three days. Cleaned the wound again which was messy! With yellow lotion on cotton wool and left the bandage off. Left it alone and checked every day and applied yellow lotion to clean of any more mess. When you see the wound heeling from the out side in it is on it's way to scabbing up so just leave it alone and see if it will heel with out using any more lotion. I hope this helps.

This whole proud flesh thing was new to me when I got back into horses. It seemed like everyone was all concerned about it, but I had never heard of it when we had horses when I was a kid. I agree with SMRobs and CowChick -- the "over-care" that people do now is more of a problem than anything.

Goosey, as for being devastated over a scar -- why? Heavens, its not like it's a hugely noticeable area and I'll bet if the cut had been left alone more, you wouldn't have had a scar at all. Whether you will now is yet to be seen.

NorthernMama, if you read my post correctly it said I WOULD'NT be devastated if it scarred. Maybe take the time to properly read through things.
My horse's legs are far from perfect but I really don't give two hoots.
Everyone is saying to just leave it alone but as far as I'm concerned, when I just left it, it festered! And how can I just turn my horse out with a huge lump of proud flesh and let the flies eat at it and put all their nasty stuff into it?

For anyone that reads this and is looking for the best treatment, don't buy Debrisol, its a waste of time. Opt for treatments that involve Copper Sulfate, or just go out and buy yourself some bluestone! I was so so amazed at how well it worked, after trying what seemed like everything.
This is what the farrier did/recommended:
Get some gamgee, enough to surround the pastern and dampen the end of it and put some bluestone on it, placing it over the proud flesh, making sure to cover all of it.
Wrap the rest around the limb smoothly. Cover in Vetwrap , not tight enough to cut off circulation but not too loose that it will slip ;)
After the vet wrap, do 1-2 layers of duct tape to keep that thing in place! You will want to leave this on for 48 hours. After the time has passed...take the bandage off. Hurray! All the proud flesh will hopefully be gone! If you still want to take away more proud flesh, Leave the bandage off for about 4-6 hours but apply some manuka honey mixed with brown sugar and slather it on. Repeat the process to get rid of more of that proud flesh :) Once all the proud flesh is gone, keep that cut from developing more proud flesh by putting the manuka honey and brown sugar mix on it.
Let me know if this also worked for you! Saved me a tonne in vet bills!

Oh, jeepers. Sorry. When I read your opening post, I did read it correctly. Then later on when you wrote you wouldn't be devastated, I read exactly that you would be. Don't know how I did that.

Before the copper sulfate was applied, after 48 hours of it bandages on, then after another 24 hours bandaged on...Holy Smoly!! Told you it works nicely!
