Proud Flesh


I am not a veterinarian nor have I had any schooling in that area. I am simply talking about my personal experience as a small farmer and animal lover.

*I stole this photo off of google*

Proud Flesh is one of my biggest fears when it comes to my horses getting wounds on there legs. I have never actually had it on any of my horses but I have found it on a few of the camp horse that I have worked with in the past, I just seem to be quite paranoid.


I have one horse in particular that is always hurting her self. I don’t know what it is but she just seems extra good at finding ways to scratch her self up.

I am supper pleased that even though she’s go these injuries on her legs they are healing really well!


I have been putting Vetericyn spray and Corona ointment on them and its doing wonders for her! No proud flesh and it healing supper quick I couldn’t be more pleased!


If your asking, “why does she use two different products? Wouldn’t just one be cheaper?” Well you would be right, sort of. Corona ointment is much cheaper however it does not have antiseptic in it. It does a great dob for anything that is not at risk of getting supper infected. Vetericyn on the other hand does have a great antiseptic in it so it is great for almost any open wound! The down side though, it is almost three times the cost of Corona. So to make life easier on my self I have both.

As always, God Bless!

    Oh, I know the pains of a horse who hurts themselves easily!
    Our Palomino is nicknamed our “Bubblewrap” horse. She gets cuts and scrapes seemingly by standing still. lol!
    For surface scrapes, I use vitamin a and d cream, and those few (knock on wood) times she’s managed something more serious, unpastuerized honey worked wonders! 🙂
