I got my smb's from this site - I had to comprimise on color, but darn it, they were cheaper than everyone else!

It says it comes in Sm. Med. And Large...I'm taking Med is just regular horse size and Sm is pony and LG is draft?

If no how can I tell what size Sonny takes? He has REALLLY small legs for some reason...and that's why I want to have them protected. My BO had some SMB (when I saw the picture I knew that's where they were) but they were kinda small and it had to be overlapped a bit....does that matter at all? It fit a big bones Morgan perfectly...I'm taking it was a Medium, but not 100%

I may look and see what the local tack shops have because I hate to order stuff (just don't like to hehehe) but if it's a HUGE price difference then I'll suffer and order them

This is general...not sure if it applies to all brands.

Small: 10"
Medium: 12"
Large: 13"

Measure Sunny's fetlocks at the widest point and that's your size. Be aware that there is sometimes a full size difference between front and back legs. Also, go up a size from your measurement. If he is 11", get a medium, for example.

Actually they're supposed to overlap. You want them to kind of "wrap" around your horses legs a bit, unlike galloping boots that close from tip of neoprene to the other tip of neoprene. (does that make sense? I'm getting tired...) There's a TB at our barn who's 16h but fairly petite who wears a large. I think they tend to run a bit small but the average horse at our barn is like 16.2 so I've kind of lost perspective on what "average" means :)

My fine legged ASB wears a medium. So does my stocky QH/TB :)
