    This is what happened to my 5 year old. She got a severe infection in her hock. Had an overnight onset of cellulitis, the infection got into the joint and part of her bone was eaten away by the infection. It was a long healing process. The swelling has just now gone done and the leg looks nearly completely normal after 5 months.

    Therefore we do Pentosan, MSM and the Back On Track boots to help. From the boots alone I see a decrease in swelling after she has it on. The really cold days can sometimes get to her.

    Thank you-they sound worth buying!
    Has anyone else had experienced JUST putting them on before you ride? Success?

    I don't have the hock wraps, but I do use the sheet, no-bows, and the quick wraps. I want to invest in the hock boots and the saddle pad also.

    When we haul I haul him in his sheet and no-bows, I also stall him with them both as well. I leave them on until I get ready to saddle, and he LOVES it! I put it on him and his entire demeanor changes and he gets super relaxed.

    He bumped his cornet band while playing and came up sore 2 days later after he got shod, and also had a pulled muscle at the time. So I had his sheet and the quick wraps on (they go lower then the no bows). Within a few days the swelling where the pulled muscle was, was almost gone. And he blew an abcess out of his cornet band.

    So I am a big believer in the BOT products. Like I said before I use the products before I run and my guy is looser, so if you put them on before you ride I am sure yours will be a little less stiff as well.
