In just over a month I'm going to be hauling my mare about 2500km. She's been trailered lots before but always in a stock trailer with other horses. This time she'll be going alone in a 2 horse straight haul... we're working up to the part where she actually GETS IN
I've never used boots on any horses before but figure that it probably can't hurt, right? I've heard horror stories about shipping boots but it seems like people seem to like using standing wraps (I know how to wrap properly).
My question is, for this distance (unfortunately we'll be doing it in only a couple of days due to time restrictions), would you wrap or not? I'm not sure whether to just use quilts or if I should go for "No Bows"... what the heck are they really anyway?? I was also thinking of putting bell boots on her all round.
