Question
leg bandages
leg bandages  
hello ma'am. this is an image of an indian thoroughbred racehorse after workouts. may i know what type of leg bandages are used on this horse's fore legs. i dont think so it is polo wraps.

Answer
Rohit,

Those look more like support boots although they don't go around the ankle.  May just be on the legs for protection.  They are most definitely not polo wraps.  No clue, in all honesty, what kind of bandage/brace/whatever they are.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.
