Using Polo Wraps as standing wraps?
Could use a polos to wrap around the no bow wraps and use them as standing bandages? I know they are made of a different material, and polos do not provide a lot of support, but with the no bow/cotton wraps would they be okay?
No, if you're wrapping an injured horse - use standing wraps. Plus, if the horse is injured there should be quilts under the wraps.
I am still re-couping my horse that suffered torn ligaments at the hands of a farrier last July. I change his leg quilts and standing wraps twice a day and everything goes in the washer before the next wearing.
The only time he is out of wraps is the four hours I put his Backontrack Quick Wraps on.
If it were good and warm he wouldn't need the wraps anymore, but I don't want his legs cold and neither does the vet.
BTW, there is a correct direction and an incorrect direction to wrap legs.
The wraps go from front-to-back. Clockwise on the right leg, counter-clockwise on the left leg. I'm left-handed, I think that's correct but there are YouTube videos by veterinarians that show how to properly wrap legs.
That was more than you asked for:-(
^^ Walk, your farrier caused your horse to have torn ligaments???
If you need something to get you through until the tackstore opens and you can buy actual standing wraps, than yes, in a pinch, that would suffice. That being said, get the standing wraps as soon as possible, the polos aren't going to do much more than hold the no-bows on. If you're wrapping it's generally for the support, and you need the proper stuff for that.
I personally don't like to because they have way to much stretch for my liking when wrapping with NBs. But if your in a bind they would be ok until you get your hands on Standing Wraps.
