Wow, never heard of that one.
We have 10 barefoot Horses and when we take them out to areas with gravel and rough terrain we use Cavallo Boots and Old Mac II, one fits better for round Hooves and one fits better for Oval.
We did not like the Easy Boots too much, over steppers pull them off, they dig in to the back of the foot, can be hard to latch and unlatch, etc.
We have tried the Boa Boots too, did not like them, too hard to get on unless you do a trim every 3 weeks.
I suggest double checking sizing suggestions from manufacture as many of the Boots do not match up to Steel Shoe Sizes.
