You shouldn't need to put anything on. Horses do just fine turned out without any extra equipment. If your horse has issues overreaching, and your farrier cannot or will not fix them, then a pair of front pull on or petal bell boots might be a good idea. Otherwise, you shouldn't need any boots or wraps.

Mitchell's like that, he's hopeless hahah.
But he doesn't have any boots or anything on, he's slowly learning how not to hurt himself. He had a cut on the front of his right rear leg, at about the same height as the hock... I honestly have no idea what-so-ever how he managed to get one there, but he did *HeadDesk.

You can get specialised paddock boots, well here you can so I assume you can there too.

Nicks and bumps happen. It's a party of being a horse. Short of bubble wrapping them head to toe, there's not a lot you can do to prevent all injuries. The more turnout your horse has, the less likely he is to injure himself. Lots of turnout helps them get all that excess energy out, so they'll run around like an idiot less.

i think it would be very funny to see a horse in bubble wrap what would be even funnier is to watch him roll in it and not expect the popping

I came back from Christmas break and Abby had what the vet decided were rope burns all over her right hind leg and was lame. I have no idea how she did it or found a rope in her paddock. I don't know, but it healed quickly and I don't use any protection on her legs because she did that.

Like my equine professor said a couple weeks ago: "Your horse will hurt its legs at some point, there's no question about that. It just depends on how badly and the most you can really do is hope it's not bad."

Well it wont hurt to put boots on my horse, yes they will get nicks and cuts normally but I want to prevent that. I lost alot of riding time in the past because of that stuff he will get a smal cut and be all lame for a week. Im not wasting my time this year so I wanna get good boots.
