Serious Discussion on Hoof Boots!
I need to know the pros and cons on the different types of boots out there. I am going to purchase a pair, but I am up in the air on which boot will work.
My mare had foundered and has very flat soles. She is sound on grass pasture, but little tender on concrete or grave surfaces. Her heals are down, but the toe is just slightly long not by much.
I like the look of the Renegade Hoof Boots. They look easy, simple and could hold up. However, it mentions that it is designed for a short toe. My second choice would be the Easy Boot Boa's. I am not sure how they would truly fit and I need something that I can go through water in.
Here is what I am needing:
- Easy application
- Something that can be used to walk through creeks, rivers, lakes, or to go swimming with in the pond or lakes.
- Don't want it to suck off in deep mud or any kind of mud.
I know that other people have been asking these questions in threads here and there. But I have yet to find a thread that is about the different types of boots, why they work or don't work.
