FYI vet wrap works great and you don't need any tape!

The only way vet wrap would work would be to wrap it around his throat or nose, since the sore is on his cheek bone. I'm afraid that it would slip and he'd have trouble breathing, especially since he is quite active. But, what we are doing now is working well, thank goodness!

So glad it is clearing up, I was going to suggest Swat, have you seen or ever tried some stuff called Tri-Care by Farnum? I use it for every cut and scrap. It works as a barrier from flies and moisture plus it fights infection. Its a pain killer too so don't wipe your mouth or face after applying as it will numb your lips. Huh, did I say that? Would I be silly enough to stick my hand near my face after applying goo to my horses ouchies? guess so. Anyway it works great.

Oops, I forgot it was on his face. That would be difficult to wrap wouldn't it?

Ive never heard of summer sores but I can only imagine. I hope the new barn you are at will avoid the next summer's bout of the sores. Good luck.

Well using a maxi pad makes sense as they are designed to hold the blood away from anything open.. logical thinking to those using the pads..
