Front or back?

I found these horse boots and they were on sale so I bought them. Anyhow, I was wondering if they are for the front or back legs? ( I know this is pathetic that I don't know, but anyhow.....)

These are so called "splint boots". You put them on fronts and they prevent from splints. That black thing out of different material goes to the inner part of the leg and the buckles on the outter part. I use similar on my horses all the time I work them out now (as with the lateral movements they can hit themself).

Thank you! I know it was a silly question but I didn't want to get it wrong when I put them on.

Only silly question is the one that's not asked!

Ditto! It's better to ask and be safe, then be shy and run into problems!

I've used/seen them used on the backs too - just have to get a bigger size most of the time..

Are they designed to be used there? I'm just wondering, because I've never seen them being used on back legs.

Yep, they make special hind splint boots, but I've compared them side-by-side and except for the hinds being a tiny bit longer they are the same. So normally you can go a size up in fronts and use them on the hinds.

Here's a link: Devon-Aire Hind Splint Boots - Dover Saddlery.
