what kind are those? are they bell boots or do they cover the whole hoof? if they cover the whole thing, can you take a pic of them from the underside?

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Cool! How do they deal with water out on trail; do they allow water in but out just as easily, or would you have to empty them after a water crossing?

They are called easyboot trail they are a full hoof boot.
I haven't tried them in water but they do have drainage and say they will stay on no matter how deep the water is they are so easy to put on / take off so far i love them.

I was just thinking that, Celeste.

I always avoided hoof boots because they looked so hard to get on, but I may have to look into some that open/close like that.

I cannot wait to hear how they perform for you. Like everyone else said, they look so much easier to get on and off. I carry an easyboot as a "spare tire" on trail and the simpler, the better!

The EAyboot trails are designed for light duty.

Easyboot just announced their new BackCountry boots that are a Mid duty use boot. They look a lot like your Trails but are supposed to be a little tougher and designed for 25-50 miles per week.

I have a collection of broken boots. They do the job, But I get tired of the expense to repair or replace them.

I am looking to buy a pair of these, valleyvet has a bit of a sale on them. So, how did they perform for you?
I have old mac's, which I like...but I am lazy and they are a chore to get on! They make it seem as if these are a lot easier to get on....true?
How about how they wear - have you noticed any rubbing?

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
