Re: Wrapping legs

I would suggest that you reduce the possibility of heat or swelling by cold
wraping the legs for about 20 minutes. If you don't have ice boots, try
shipping boots. Just velcro the bottom strap around the top of the hoof and
start filling with ice as you continue to work your way up until the entire
boot is filled with ice. Only necessary to leave on a short time, after
which you can wrap for support if you so choose.
