The boots were some kind of cross country type brushing boots. It was our first time going cross country and my 15.2 hand paint, was wearing the boots of a 17 hand warmblood. They didn't fit correctly and I had no idea. :(
Surprisingly, he's been completely sound through this whole thing. The only time he was markedly uncomfortable, was when the hind legs were swollen. Both vets that I employed had stated that LOTS of exercise was necessary for a complete recovery.
He disliked me poking and prodding at the hole in his leg, so much so that he attempted to blast me a few times... haha! But once it started to close up, he had no opinion about it anymore.
Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
