hmm I wondering about those too! I don't know much about them. When I ride my horse we have to ride on the road, and I think horse boots might help with not damaging the hooves. I would like to learn more about them also, they sound very useful!
Yes, they help with not damaging the hooves, I think! And also it helps sore feet, or so I heard from lots of people.
So it would certainly be something for me, I think.. If only I've got the money and get to understand the sizes :P
I've loved hoof boots! I'm a fan of the Easyboot epic. My horse could walk on anything with them. I only put them on his front feet too and he was fine. I'd definitely recommend them
Wow, really? Sounds great! I'm actually considering the Easyboot Glove, as my best friend has got one of her horses barefoot, and she was really sore until my best friend was recommended to use hoofboots, and those really worked!
What's the difference between the Easyboot Epic and the Easyboot Glove, you think?
Talk to your farrier about shoeing and laminitis. Sometimes they can be greatly helped by the right shoe.
I have talked to my farrier already
And read an ebook about the "natural" approach to laminitis, and the author recommended having the hoof shaped in the natural way.
So I did that and that really helped!
Silver isn't really suffering from laminitis anymore, she has improved greatly and I've started exercising her more. But she gets sore on asphalt, she's ever done so, that was why I was wondering about the hoofboots, not because of laminitis. Silver's always been sore on asphalt when not shod, it's not anything new :)
Thanks for your answers, folks!
More are welcome!!
