|I will remember your suggestions when we get back to regular wrapping. Thanks for sharing. I'm making a list.
I looked all over the internet to find a pic of a horse that might be wrapped up like Taylor is now. I can't find any. I'm leery about taking a pic of her in the stall because I don't want the flash to set her into a panic. This stalled mare is becoming a handful of nerves.
She is heavily wrapped from above her hoof to well above the hock. It is thick, layer upon layer. Her opposite hind is also wrapped for support because she started stocking up on that leg.
I did go online and ordered cases of vet wrap and packs of brown gauze. The vet is now selling me the cotton (pillow top like fluffy) by 10 yard rolls. I was fussing about it taking an 18" cotton square . . . OK, now he is using about 5ft of this stuff per bandage change but it only has to be changed every 4 or 5 days most likely. Changing the wrap is no longer something we can do. The vet has to do it.
I'll try to refrain from fussing about costs (tho it is hard to forget). It costs what it costs. I just want my horse well and I don't want her to lose her mind during this time. She is becoming anxious and grouchy. Getting harder to handle.
Thanks y'all for listening to my troubles and sharing your great ideas.
Bless you, bless you, bless you friends.
