    I didn't mean travel boots, I wouldn't ever paddock a horse with them on. I mean paddock boots, like these

    A lot of show horses wear them 24/7 here, and a lot of older horses too.

    That's fair enough, it does get a little tricky when you have multiple health problems in a horse. My miniature got laminitis just after we rescued her so I can sympathise with the care of a horse like that.
    I hope you find something that works for her, I have heard of the "back-on-track" products being good for arthritic horses and everything else. My best friend has a showjumper that goes lame easily so he has back-on-track leg wraps that he wears after being ridden and before big competitions and they work really well, he hasn't shown any signs of being uncomfortable since then.

    I'd ask the vet about adding MSM to the diet. AFAIK it should be safe for pretty much every horse and makes a big difference for some. It's also generally very inexpensive.

    ^ In addition to the MSM I would also suggest extra magnesium (MG Chloride is easily utilised, unlike Mg Oxide for eg).
