Polo Wraps as Stable Bandages?

I hope this is the right place to post this, but I noticed my horse kinda knocks her feet around in her stall. I don't have stable bandages at the moment, and wont be going out to town in a week or 2, so I was wondering if I can use polo wraps as stable bandages. I was taught that you should only use polo wraps for riding and never leave a horse what is the major difference? From what I have seen, polo wraps have a lighter material.

I don't use them as stable bandages but I sometimes use them during shipping.

You can use them but I personally don't like to...

The materials are way different, the polos are pretty much all fleece so have a lot of stretch when you pull. Where as the standing wraps have no stretch when you pull.

would the stretching/using polo wrap affect the horse?

You just have to be careful of how tight you put them on....because you don't want to put them on as tight as you would on a bare leg (due to the stretch factor, and they are not supposed to be applied as tightly over a Pillow/No-Bow wrap).
