If in 6 mos your horse still has underrun heels I'd be shopping for another farrier. There should have been a noticeable improvement in that time frame.

I have a pair of Cavello Simple Hoof Boots in black (I have to check the size). I used them once and they were apparently too small for my horse or I was told that they need to be "broken in" before using for trail riding. Anyway, they are in excellent condition. I believe there is a sale right now on the red ones for $99 and I'm pretty sure that's EACH. I would sell mine for $125 for the pair, including shipping. But you need to know what size your horse wears. I think if you check out the Cavello website they tell you how to measure.

They are easy to put on and my girlfriend loves the ones she has for her horse. She just puts them on the front.

Thanks everyone :)

He is still growing out weak hoof, it takes up to a year for their feet to really be great. I've been trimming him for the past more than 3 months because Mum's been out of action and well I'm not the most experienced (or trained) farrier, but I'm for sure more reliable than most of the farriers in my area! At least I actually turn up to trim. We know a brilliant barefoot farrier with 2 years of university level training in hoof trimming... she is fully qualified and always up for learning more. But my god she charges like a wounded bull, and I have two horses. I could have BOTH of them done by nearly any other local farrier for what she charges for one.

The boots were sort of a meanwhile thing, while we get his feet sorted out and nice and strong. I think I will start feeding him hoof suppliments but I have to get paid first!
