Davis Splint Boots?

I am planning on buying atleast one pair of Davis splint boots from Dover Saddlery. It doesn't state in the magazine whether they can be used for both front and hind, or just front. Does anybody know?

I use splint boots (not Davis, but Woof and one no-brand) on front and hind. Just make sure to go size up for hind (like I have medium for front, large for hind).

WS, but wouldn't be the bone considerably longer on hind? My horse is rather small (14'3), but medium is definitely too short for the hind.

The mediums are too big for the front, but we make do, and fit perfectly on the hind - Lucy is 14.1 with very little legs!
