My gelding has strained/torn his hamstring muscle per vet. We have him on limited turnout (to keep him moving but no running) and Surpass. Now that the swelling has gone down a bit and he is a bit more comfortable I had a massage therapist come out and massage him. He had definite pain in his hamstring muscle and hip area. She suggested icing both those areas.
Any ideas how to ice the hamstring muscle and top of the rump area?? Also tried cold hosing but the water in my well is just not that cold to make a difference. I looked online but couldn't find anything. Does someone make a blanket with sewn in pockets in that area?
