Hey guys. I will try to get some pix tonight. It is improving but I had some issues with figuring out how to wrap it. The gauze and k-flex kept rolling up and then I ran out of gauze and bought some at tractor supply that was horrible. It chafed the back part so I have been using a standing wrap starting below the knee and going all the way down the hoof and back up. I put the no-stick pad in it.

That is such a weird wound! I really am puzzled what caused that. It's almost like a big chunk of proud flesh now. Are you putting anything on it to shrink it, or do you think it's shrinking on it's own?

There's a lot of stupid out there!

I really think it was a summer sore that just got away from me. I am pouring sugar on it to get rid of the proud flesh. It's working but it's going to be a slow process...

Alum powder works well too if you have some in the cupboard.
I have used it on several occasions for leg/foot wounds with proud flesh. I make a paste with furazone or honey and wrap, in a couple of days the proud flesh will start sloughing.
Sounds "hippy dippy" but it works.

Maybe it's the angle of the pic but I think it looks worse

Me too. In that picture anyway it looks like it has taken over the coronary band where it didn't before.

You really need a vet out for this, I think. Whatever caused it, now it has so much proud flesh it will need debriding to get down to where the skin can close over it.

I just went through this with Pippa and her self-mutilation wound on her hock. It had proud flesh over a quarter inch high, smaller area than your horse, but ugly ugly ugly and never-healing. The vet took it all down to skin surface level (a nasty bloody job of work that was) and I dressed it twice daily with Manukka honey (and kept her in a horse Cone of Shame for a month and an half).

Now it looks like the photo below -- the once-three-inch-wide open wound was at the bottom of her incision scar. Actually better than the photo because it was taken a month ago. Would not have without debriding that's for sure. My Brooke has significant and ugly proudflesh on the back of her pastern from a bad wire cut she got in a pasture which was left untreated (before I got her). Will carry it to her grave.
