That shocks me in a huge way. When I was looking to ship my horse with me when I moved I talked to about a dozen different shipping companies and they all told me no wraps. I could do boots but they would not allow wraps. The trip would have been 5 days in a box stall. They all do regular stops and check the horses and water them. It was just the fact it was to hard to get in and fix wraps should they slip or come loose.
One thing I am noticing. No one who wraps does bell boots? The most important area to protect is the ball of the heel.
I don't think I have any pictures of my ponies ready to trailer but I do a tail wrap, stable sheet, "helmet", sometimes slinky hood, wraps or boots that cover the foot all the way to the knee and hock.
ETA - I see crimsonsky had bell boots. They were just black and blended in lol.
