    What to use?

    Phantom cut his leg on the trailer, it was his first time backing out and he really wasn't too happy about it so he kinda slid (I don't know a better word) his back feet out of the trailer.

    My question is what should I use on it? Been using triple antibiotic and some Swat to keep the flies away from it but is there anything else I should do.

    This was after I washed it mind you.

    I personally would just keep fly spray on it and let it heal on it's own time. Let it scab up and heal without messing with it too much. Of course, keep an eye on it for any signs of infection but that is a fairly minor injury and should heal up with no problems.

    I agree with smrobs. It doesn't look too bad and once it scabs over and heals it won't even leave a mark.

    K thanks guys. We like the way we had the horses in the trailer which means he'll have to back out all the time now...so now I guess this means I gotta use shipping boots now.... No biggie :)

    You may not need to use shipping boots. If he has never had to back out of the trailer before, it is only natural he would be clumsy and uncomfortable about it. Just work with him on it so that he backs out comfortably and slowly and you probably wouldn't have any more problems.

    Ok thanks I'll definitely try to work on it this week makes more sense then rushing out to buy boots. :)
