vet wrap question

Is Vet wrap okay to use alone on a horse's leg?

I am thinking about using vet wrap on my horse's legs as part of a halloween costume. They are way cheaper than polo wraps. It would only be on his legs for a little while.

Wasn't Halloween like... two weeks ago?

Also, I don't see the harm in Vet Wrap for a little while. It mostly only sticks to itself. If you wanted, you could put gauze or something underneath, but I don't think it would hurt to use it alone.

We wrapped the horses legs in vet wrap for 4th of july (in blue and red of course, they were white horses, haha) and they suffered no ill effects. It took them a bit to get used to the stuff on their legs but other than that, no issues. =)

Yep, should be fine as it's self-adhesive, but won't stick to other stuff. Be careful to not wrap too tight.
