LOVE the gloves!! I use them on a horse whose hoof is rehabbing from an old injury, and even though his "bad" foot is not really the right shape (yet) they have not been lost yet, and they don't rub particularly, so they work well for us. They were fairly inexpensive (as far as hoof boots go. . .) and I would note that even if your horse's hoof is not quite the right shape, they can be used with a 'power-strap' to help hold them tighter, and, as well you can fine tune the fit by using a heat gun to help reshape the boots, though our guy's fit is not so bad that I have personally tried that.
