Thanks for the advice. Ok so the next step is getting the boots. AppyT I looked at the cavallo and those are less expensive then the others I was looking at although easyboots is having a clearance on some of the boots they have. Any other boot suggestions? I can take them off daily for an hour or two, and on days when we have good soft snow or when things have softened up I can leave them off then as well.
L2R I will ask my farrier about Hoof Armor as well.Thanks for the input.
I really love the whole barefoot idea and unfortunatly he has been shod for almost his entire life since he was a track baby and all. I just hate seeing him in such pain right now!! This weather sucks also as the pastures are glare ice and he even slipped last week and I had to have the vet out to check him out. Thank goodness he just banged his knee pretty good, so of course he is in pain because of that too!!
I swear I will get pictures up soon, I have just been so busy with his cold soaks and wrapping and unwrapping his legs due to his injury I have totally forgotten about taking pictures.
