    No suggestions on wound products, but here's another vote for fly boots. They will keep the bugs, as well as the sun and dirt at bay. My mare had the worst case of scratches one year, took months to clear up, and the vet thought keeping the sun off it was a big help. Totally different type of problem, I know, but you have to figure the sun on it doesn't help... plus the way fly boots lay I don't think it would touch that too much. Good luck!

    That is one ugly wound!!!

    This was today after cleaning it. My mom went by and put Avon skin so soft on her leg two times today and there were no gnats swarming it this evening when I brought her up. 20170516_182515.jpg

    Skin so soft is in every bottle of fly spray I have :D

    That is healing nicely.

    I put it in my fly spray bottles as well, lol!

    We dab it on our faces when we go to the barn too.

    There was also a puncture into the hock and this is what it looked like inside March 2015.

    This pic was two days ago.

    Horse is progressing well because my mom sent me a video of this heifer galloping around her pasture, around and around and around. :crazy:
