I have wrapped a Perch mare with legs a good 12 inches around with Pony Polos once. It's all in how you wrap them. Start a good 1/2" down from the upper joint (knee/hock) and then wrap more on a diagonal so you're covering more surface area each time around. Make sure the feathering is clean and laying flat and just wrap over it. As with all polos make sure you pull tight across the cannon not the tendon and smooth out any wrinkles or bulges. You can also do just the cannon but bring it down even with the bottom of the ergot if you're having difficulties wrapping over the ergot when you move down around the pastern. If you are using them as "brushing" support you don't need to wrap down around the pastern as long as you wrap snugly and correctly along the cannon. Hope this helps!
