There is no question you will need a vet check, a coggins test and a statement of ownership. It is required that these documents accompany horses shipped across or within most all state lines. I have moved my horses all over this country...and never used shipping boots, but I do use bell boots, some of the time. It is more likely that they will get an injury around the coronet than anywhere else...in my experience, anyway. And, if its during the summer, heat is going to be a concern that you have to manage well...full leg shipping boots would be super hot.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
