Smilie - Thanks for the link.
I think those boots are more for horses that need a more permanent protection?
I'm looking more at something to use short term if she looks a bit sore some days that would be easier than wrapping with a pad and duct tape. She's gone through the winter with the icy rutted ground we've had a lot of this year so I'm hoping she'll be OK but only time will tell.
Actually, while I did use those boots quite extensively, when Smilie had that severe mechanical founder that i posted about, they now are great for putting on, just when she needs that extra protection between her and the hard ground, as I am trying to keep shoes off her.
Thus, I now have her barefoot during the day, when the ground becomes un frozen, and she is fine. I put them on over night, when the ground freezes, including those lumps of muddy ruts and poop. It is just a precaution, to protect her coffin bone, while I wait for that normal hoof wall, FINALLY growing, to reach the ground.
Not sure what is wrong with your horse, but thought I would mention them, as you can get various inserts, and they give both great protection, plus frog support. Very easy to put on and off.
Hope your horse is fine,having just a short term issue, as dealing with a hoof issue can be very frustrating at times!
