Well it has been 9 weeks on the hinds they got a little off schedule when she got shoes in front off schedule. But it's not constant just more than never. She's clumsy too. Getting better though.

Sorrelhorse, do those pro tec boots run small? I picked up a pair of their bell boots last night since I have to get my own now and they are smaller than the bell boots I had been using which were the pro choice ones size small/medium. The ones I got last night are small and not small/medium so I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

The reason I ask is those pro tec boots are at my local feed store in medium and large for only $43, soooooo if a medium would fit that would save me money on purchase and shipping.

I'm going to measure tonight, I forgot a measuring tape but I will remember tonight.

I'm putting in a picture of her so maybe there's a very small chance you can tell me if she looks like she looks to be small boned or not. And I officially measured her at 14.1 last night :(

Someone puts out a boot with extra protection in the fetlock area. Talk to your farrier about this. A good farrier may be able to alter the trim a little to help alleviate this. Get the best boots you can. Tendons are extremely slow to heal-a year and then there's scar tissue. Not like muscle.
