Don't wrap. Do cut the fetlock hair. Along with your treatments, the skin needs air.
If you don't show, you can shave all that hair back to a crew cut.
Pasture boarding is tough on a horse prone to Scratches. Chronic Scratches is generally an immune issue. A couple of doses of cow liquid Vitamin A might help.
It is injectable Vitamin A for cows but given ORALLY to horses..
5CC once a week for two weeks and that's it, as Vit A stores in the liver, instead of dumping from the system like other vitamins.
If the horse is fed grain daily, especially if it is a sweet feed grain, stop feeding, as all that starch in the system is not helping the issue.
A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.
