Boots for overnight in the paddock?
So - Show season is coming, too quickly!
In the past my horses haven't had white socks - But Lucy has two. I plan on doing lots of led classes so presentation is super important (Ick!).
I plan on clipping her socks out and using white cover creme - However, I don't have stables/yards so she has to spend the night before in her paddock. I have rugs/hoods, all good, but i'm torn on what to do with her legs.
I could bandage - But am always scared of bandages in the paddock as getting legs tangled would end badly.
I could get something like these leg wraps:
But i'm worried they would slip down?
I can get sheepskin boots like paddock boots that come down to the coronet - But they would catch grass seeds, and the makeup on her legs would stick to the wool.
So I was thinking stable wraps - Like a pillow wrap but with a neoprene boot holding it on so you don't have to bandage. Only problem is they might get hot?
They could help, but it depends on the horse. There are some horses that you just can't keep white overnight, no matter how hard you try :-| If you are going to clip the area, I would just get to the barn a little earlier and wash those socks with a whitening shampoo.
I did have a friend that used vetwrap, big tube socks, and duct tape, but that was usually not overnight, and it didn't do a good enough job.
