What is Vetwrap? To me, it looks like really thin, disposable polos, but what does it really do for the horse?

Vetwrap is used for wrapping injuries, mainly.

Okay, thanks! I see it in all these horse magazines, and I always wonder what it is. Lol.

Vetwrap is usually used by vets and owners on horse injuries. Some people use it like a disposable set of polos, and a friend of mine uses it for the horses tail and mane! She wraps the beginning of the tail in it. On the mane she uses it to put bows in the hair (idk how!).

Its used for wrapping injuries usually, but people put a cotton(or something like it) pad between the injury and vetwrap :)

I want to get some of it!! I think it would just look nice in the tail (braided) and around the legs (as polos) while running barrels!

A positive is the range of colours you can get haha.
Almost bought a set of 4 in Bright Blue to use as disposable polo wraps. ;P
Used one of my purple wraps when I sprained my wrist and it was really useful.
