Sore on horses knee
I bought a horse about a month and a half ago, and he had a small abrasion on the outside of his left knee. The previous owner said he was at another barn, and that the sore was caused by some metal---kind of like a rug-burn on a human. She told me to put Furo salve on it a couple times a day, and it would go away. Well, it hasn't---although, I have been lax with the applications due to a lot going on in our family lately---a death, vacation, etc. I'm pretty worried about this sore, although it is causing my horse no apparent discomfort, and is not infected or anything. It just seems to be bigger, and it does have a scab over it. Should I just continue with the furo salve, I don't really like to mess around too much with it, because I don't want to make it worse inadvertantly. I do plan to make completely sure I apply the salve at least twice daily from now on.
Everything can be achieved through patience!
I'd rather have a problem horse than a problem man. The horse I can work with. The man---I cannot help!
