chafed front ankles from laying down in stall
I have had several horses who scurf the front of their ankles and cause a sore, because they lay down at night. Of course, most of these horses somehow walk all the shavings/beddings to the sides of the stalls by the time they lay down at night,even (leaving the middle of the stall sort of bare where they lay down). I clean their stalls and rearrange bedding twice a day, once in the evening. So heavier bedding won't work. I do have rubber stall mats in each stall too.
Is there a good kind of "ankle wrap" they could wear at night to prevent them from rubbing the front of their ankles on the bottom of the mats and scrufing their skin. Is there a certain kind of ointment I can put on their little sores. Any other suggestions. Thank you in advance.
