Turning Tendon Boots- sport medicine boots instead?
ok. This is my situation. My 7yr old pacing mare can crossfire sometimes. We have done everything we can to prevent it. She has double trailers behind on her shoes, she's now sound, etc. etc. she rarely crossfires anymore. She used to do it all the time and now one ankle is larger than the other from old scartissue (this is from before I owned her). Right now we wear tendon boots, with half a wrap of vetwrap underneath on each ankle, and we tape the boots to the leg around the ankle. Her problem is that IF she does happen to crossfire, she typically spins the tendon boot around so it no longer has any protection on the inside, and then continues to crossfire and makes a big mess of herself.
Im wondering about switching to sport medicine boots. I've never used these before. Im thinking with these if she hits she either will A- not be able to spin them or B- even if she does spin them, they will still cover her where she's hitting.
Anyone use the sport medicine boots? How do you like them? What do you think about switching?
