Hock boots!

Well, Blue gets these sores on her hocks and they look like they hurt. They are from laying down in her stall(we have great flooring and bedding! Dont' comment that "you need better flooring blah blah blah) and getting up. I was thinking that hock boots would eleminate my problem, so are they ok to leave on overnight?

I don't see why not... we leave turnout boots on our horses overnight in the field. We lose one every now and then, but nothing major. I would think a properly secured hock wrap would be fine overnight in a stall.
