Cure For Cocked Ankles

I have a 4-year-old mare that has cocked ankles, and would like to know

what treatment to give her.

Cocked ankles are due to an inflammation of the tendons back of the

ankle and a drawing up or contraction in consequence. Put on heel calks

one inch, no toe, to rest and relieve the back tendons from strain.

Apply the following liniment at night, after which put on cold-water

swabs and let them remain all night: Soap liniment, 8 ounces; tincture

iodine, 2 ounces; oil cedar, 4 ounces; sulphuric ether, 2 ounces. Mix

and apply once daily.
