I'm with the others..Have a nice long talk with your vet, have him run a lameness exam, and then explain to your vet what you'd like to do with the horse and see what your vet's advice would be..
Not so sure about leaving boots on while turned out (If that's what you mean greenbryer) The horse's leg could get too warm and put him at risk of further injuring that leg when turned out with other horses. We are people, very different from an animal that can't take the boot off himself, we know when we need to take a bandage or wrap off, he can't.. Using boots while running is fine but even then the boots shouldn't be left on for long periods of time because of over heating..
