Fetlock sprain boot suggestions

My 24 year old mare sprained her left rear fetlock. I have been doing a supportive wrap but asked the vet yesterday when he was here to recheck her if a good supportive boot would be wise and he said yep. Care and time...lots of time! Amazing in my centuries of horse ownership this is the first sprain.
I will be checking a couple of local tack retailers but store supplies seem to be on the short side, I'm sure due to the online market. I found one product that appears to be one that would work, Iconoclast Hind Ortho Horse Boots. Reviews seem to be very positive for this product.
I would appreciate any input on a boot any of you may have used. Hopefully the old gal will be back in working order by next summer, even if for her own comfort if nothing else.
