DIY mini standing wraps?

Yesterday my little Shetland foal suddenly turned up completely lame, I called the vet and they were able to come out today to look him over. The poor guy somehow ended up with a deep flexor injury. We don't know the extent of it yet, and he will be rechecked and getting an ultrasound on the leg next week. Until then I was advised to wrap, ice, and keep him as still as possible. Thankfully he is pretty calm so hopefully keeping him still on stall rest wont be too tough.
Obviously normal standing wraps would swallow him whole, and nowhere around sells anything that small. I'll try and find some to order online, In the meantime, any ideas on how to make my own?

Whoosh, poor baby...

My immediate thought is cut down pony or mini wraps to a size more appropriate for the baby.
I think it is called gamgi is a cotton batting used for wrapping that also will pad and support that should also be easy to cut to size..
Don't hold me to that name, but something like sheet cotton seen below might offer a solution...
What to use for the wrap part would be more challenging if you can't find mini wraps.

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

Yup, cotton batting and vet wrap for the wraps.
