    Hey all, I've been looking into the idea of checking out some of these cold wraps I've seen from different companies all saying they require no gels, no ice, and instantly cool with water.. I was wondering if anyone was using any of these products already or had input on them compared to Ice...

    Last summer my gelding cut open the heel of his front right foot on the fence. My barn owner was very helpful in treating it. It took a LONG time to heal because of it's location. Proud flesh developed but we got rid of most of that as well. It healed as a bump with a scar. Now to the important...

    Comet got his legs all scratched up a few months ago. I wrapped and treated them often but he still has scabby type things. I tried picking some off but no blood. The hair won't grow back. The scabs are soft. What can I do to heal his legs and have the hair grow back? :?

    My horse got into a "disagreement" with another horse a few weeks ago and got the worst of it. He wound up with several bite marks and lots of scrapes (from teeth) where the hair was scraped off and the skin was a bit raw. I've been treating him with Horseman's Dream cream and it's working...
