    Default elbow cap

    I have never had to deal with this before, I am looking to buy a donut for his pastern but looking for other advice also. I have been putting DMSO on it and the swelling has gone down.

    The only thing changed with this horse is we put a plastic 3 degree wedge pad on his hoof. I guess he just sleeps on his chest and folds his legs up tightly when he sleeps. The pad would be removed before his first show.

    It is called a Shoe Boil. He is hitting his elbow with the new shoe/wedge and causing a brusitits/hygroma.

    Here is one of many places to get one: http://www.smartpakequine.com/shoe-boil-boot-5222p.aspx
