    I don't know what size they are. They are blue and rubber and......blue.

    They were on a TB mare, smaller than Nelson.

    For sure :) I have no use for them, they're just taking up space in my garage. I believe I paid about $15 for them, they're heavy, good boots. I just want 'em gone!

    Forgive my ignorance, but why does she need bell boots during turnout? My mare is shod pretty regularly and she's never pulled a shoe, nor have I ever used bell boots on her. Does Demi have a history of pulling shoes? Because if not, I'm not sure I see the point. O_O

    There are several reasons that I choose to put bellboots on Demi. 1) I have never had her shod before so I don't know if she pulls shoes easily. 2) My farrier is a very busy man so it is very hard to get him back out to redo a shoe. 3) I have always done it for horses that naturally track up pretty far. They tend to pull shoes easier. 4) she is hopefully going to a XC schooling with my trainer this weekend so I am not taking any chances

    I kinda laughed when you said that your horse would eat duck tape and probably die, I had a two year old that ate duck tape and I paniced but she was fine. Still not good. Just brought back funny memories! My horse even ate a baby wipe!

    Hey, where we are we can get petal boots or westrop over reach boots. They work like bell boots but they are made from interlocking petals and fasten with a buckle.

    Just a thought

    Oh, I see. Those are good reasons. =]

    Smartpak has a pair that are only $9.95 and there is always a free shipping code available, so buying new might be cheaper than shipping the used.
