    Bell boots

    Okay...so I feel dumb right now, but I've never actually had any experience with bell boots. I know for the most part how they're supposed to fit and how to put them on, but I cannot figure them out on Abby.

    I have Pro Choice ballistic bell boots in Large. When I put them on and get the little no-turn knob where it should be, the back is too long (I know they're supposed to touch the ground, but it pops it up out of place, causing it to easily spin around). I would just send them back and get a medium, but I'm wondering if they're going to close because if it's down where it's supposed to be, then only like half of the velcro closes.

    Does any of this make sense? I can't remember the circumference of her pasterns. I will try to remember to measure them when I go out there soon.

    Basically: The back is too long in a L, but I don't think a M will close.

    I have the same problem with my horse. I use them right now only when I lung, so I use them anyway. They are slightly long in the back and do touch the ground, but it gets the job done and my horse doesn't seem to mind. They do turn, though..

    I only got them because I plan to train her for barrels and would prefer she not take out her front legs. Haha.

    I also forgot to measure her pasturns again. I feel like it was 8 3/4ths inches when I measured before I bought them, because Pro Choice's size chart for them has M at 8.5in and L at 9in, so I got a size up and can return them if needed. I might also ask my BO tomorrow if he's there. I need his help to spray antibiotics on her back leg anyway.

    Have you tried the non no-slip kind? They might fit better and they work just the same, in my opinion.

    Which ones are those? The velcro ones that are kind of neopreney or the rubber ones?
