Rope Burn on newborn filly.
I have a 3 day old filly that got a rope burn today cause she got tangled up in her mothers lead rope... :( ( i'll never let that happen again!) It isn't terrible, but it did rip off the hair and left a 2 in. by 1/2 in. bare spot on her leg. I rinsed it really well, and then washed it with a really good soap that had lavender in it (an antiseptic) I put neosporin on it and now am making sure no flies get on it... but I don't know if that will keep it from scarring. Or if what i am doing will work how often should i wash it, and how often should I put neosporin on it? Should I do anything else to it?
