Scratch/cut on pastern how to heal up quickly?

After the show on Monday, I gave Sonny 3 days off and didn't visit him then so he could just be a horse for those days. Anyways, when I went on Friday to see him, I noticed he cut up his pastern on his hind foot. It's scabbing up so it's nothing done too recent, but what are ways that I can help it heal faster?

I've been putting MTG on it, and then Dream Coat (a healing liquid that I have) but wasn't sure if there was anything else I could do to help it heal. It's not really sensitive....and he's not favoring it at all.

Unless you see something else, I would just leave it be. If there is heat, swelling, oozing, favouring... then it needs to be revisited. Otherwise, nature will look after itself.

If it's big and you are concerned about hair loss, CutHeal will help the hair grow back nicely. Otherwise, just "let it be" - it should be completely gone in a few weeks.

I agree, it should heal in a few weeks. I'd also let it be.
