Horse in Nylon Socks – What For?

This horse is wearing nylon socks for a very practical reason.

You may see this horse in nylon socks and wonder if this is a prank. Or, is this an attempt to start a new “trend” like those poor canines in Asia wearing pantyhose because of some immature teen’s experiment?

No!  Not at all.

Turns out that this is actually a method to keep the flies off the healing wounds on horse’s legs.  For whatever reason this animal has abrasions or something of this sort on the lower legs and needs to keep it infection-free.

If you own a horse, keep this in mind and don’t throw out your old torn pantyhose.  You may need it to protect your horse’s skin from the bugs.
