Oh, btw!!! If you go to easybare_sizing
and on the bottom of the page there is a link Click here
for a template of Easyboot Bare sizing ( http://www.easycareinc.com/_System/L...t-template.pdf )
You can print it out, cut it for size # 2 and compare your horse's hoof with the template. I did it for my paint (who has wide feet) and even though my measurements gave me on edge between size 1 and size 2 the comparison clearly shown it's size 2 for sure. I found it to be very helpful one.
I used to trim every 4 weeks when I did it myself exactly for the same reasons. :) Now I do every 8 weeks by the farrier. They grow quite a lot, but kinda equally all around (not only toe), so bares are little loose in the beginning, but then they are just fine on my qh. However bares and epics have gaitor so it helps a lot to keep the boot in place.
If you trim them every 2 weeks there is no point of waiting 4 weeks. Lol! Sure you can measure after the trim.
