Agree with Missy but if the vet thinks it's ok left wrapped like that for days at a time, there wouldn't be any more risk at all with casting for a day or few at a time. You can get it from Ebay
cheaply & do it yourself.
My farrier says you almost need two pairs of boots, one for right after they are trimmed and one for after they have grown out more.
That's absolute rubbish
They wouldn't be a feasible option for the majority if it were the case... unless he means 'almost but not'
or you're talking particularly about Easycare Gloves, which lacking a fastening system, must fit extremely well.... or you're talking about WAY OVERgrown feet not fitting. Hoof boots are designed to fit allowing for leeway for hoof growth, addition of padding, etc.
