the vet recomended that we didnt use travel boots as it stops her bending her legs properly also she has been out in all weathers but with a warm rug on she is on 2 bute aday she is not on any supplements only happyhoof and hay as she suffers from laminituse
I didn't mean travel boots, I wouldn't ever paddock a horse with them on. I mean paddock boots, like these https://www.google.co.nz/search?q=ho...39%3B300%3B300
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.
