[RC] Absorbine-or a wool sock for hock overnite? - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Ray O'Donohue rno2m@xxxxxxxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Well,this is interesting.I have for years considered an overnite practice for 
now 18 y.o. Chico's right rear (hock?who knows..)problem during multi-day field 
trials.Since it is usually winter and late in the day,we cold hose our horse's 
lower legs,only,before putting them on their stake-out rigs overnite.If flat 
out cold weather,I do not hose him at all.Since the absorbine is supposed to 
cool at first and them warm afterwards,which is exactly what I want to do for 
his right rear leg,I figured that Absorbine might be just the ticket,and in 
fact I have done it a time or two.But after reading all the posts,maybe I just 
need to find a huge human wool sock to roll up onto his leg.(I find all the 
shipping boots and leg wraps in the catalogs incomprehensible.I did buy one set 
of four,but I can't tell which are the back and which are the front or the top 
from the bottom of either,and they don't seem to fit onto the leg no way no
