    Bell Boots Rubbing

    I cannot find a pair of bell boots for my TB mare that don't rub. She's on pasture board and outside 24/7 but takes good care of her blankets and such so velcro is fine.. I heard the Italian rubber type was good but the mediums are too long (could trim them??) and too wide (can fit at least 3 fingers) and I can't find smalls. I had a generic pair from dover that was fine for a week but then started to rub.. she over reached badly and has been out of work for almost a month because of it, so I don't want that to happen again!

    Is it true that if I just let them rub she'll get used to them? No bleeding so far, just a loss of hair...

    Could I put moleskin on the insides to help with rubbing? I thought about fleece lined ones but we're having a rainy summer and I think those would just be soaked and covered in grass and such.

    I haven't tried professionals choice, thin line, ect. Because I'm not sure that they'd be good for outside..

    Any advice? :) Thanks!!

    Am I understanding the situation correctly? Your mare wears bell boots when out on pasture? You essentially want a boot that she can wear constantly?

    Yes - sorry if I was not clear! Since she over reaches so badly, she's going to have to constantly wear them.

    That will always cause problems. And eventually, it will cause one or more of many problems.

    I really suggest finding someone, a farrier, that will work to correct the excessive overreaching on your horse. That will be a much better long term solution for your horse.

    Best wishes.
