Hmm they wouldn't be a bad boot for conditioning/hacking then. Wouldn't want to take them xc but that's what boogaloos are for.

Are boogaloos a legitimate type of boot?

Holy, those are some expensive boots D:
I got all excited for nothing! Haha
Maybe I could find some used.

Do you think that's a bad idea NB?

You can try and find them used or you can go for woof boots Woof Brushing Boot | BOE2676 | Greenhawk Woof Brush Boot- Double Lock | BOE2674 | Greenhawk or try these Shedrow Closed Front Boot | BOE0002 | Greenhawk

I like those, thanks!!
I wonder if I could find a measurement of them. My mare is all the awkward in-between sizes.

If she is in between you will have better luck with the woof boots. The shedrow boots are pretty much a fit perfect or don't fit at all. Woof boots have more room for adjustment.

Do you think if I were to take a measurement of her leg, like around it, and then compared it to boots, it would be okay?
Or maybe go a tiny bit bigger?
Thanks for all this help!!

Take a measurement and call Greenhawk maybe and ask them. The problem with the shedrow boots is if you go bigger they will slide down the leg. Its just the way they are made, they really don't have room for playing around with. You could try a bit smaller and you might have a tiny space but it wont be to bad and they are double velcro so its not to bad.

I have both shipping boots and polo wraps with quilts. For short trips, like to the farrier (one hour away), I use the shipping boots. For long distance travel, I wrap with polos.
People have problems with shipping boots when they don't strap them on tight enough. You want to wrap them as tight as is humanely possible for them to stay up. Some folks secured them additionally with duct tape.
People sometimes tell you don't bother with either. If they had seen my friend's mare--easy to trailer--who started to unload, then, realizing she was still tied to the trailer she reloaded and ripped the skin away from the cannon bone bc of the metal below the lip on the back of the stock trailer, they might change their minds. It was my friend's idea NOT to bother wrapping that day, and it was her horse who paid the price. FORTUNATELY, we we at the Vet's getting the blood for Coggins, so she had the best care possible for the injury. And...she recovered.
I will NEVER travel without boots or wrapped legs.
I have 2 extra sets of shipping boots. I keep them in a tack box in my tack room, clean, folded and at-the-ready, along with the other wraps and quilts, also put away clean.

I had to look up boogaloos too!!!
I like the look of them - paying more sometimes isnt so bad as they last so much longer. So saying I have a few pairs of Woof boots and they are years old and still good
I would be really nervous about travelling without some sort of leg protection - I wouldnt say I'm 'over protective' its just vets bills are expensive and an injured horse is going to be off work so why take a risk
