Long Term Boots for Hind Legs
I have a paint that was diagnosed with hoof pain in his hind. He had heel pain in the left front and we have him sound with wedge shoes/pads while rehabbing his hooves. I also put him on a magnesium supplement. In the hind, x-ray shows no navicular changes, just a bad hoof angle. Vet shortened his toes and I will work with the farrier on his heels. The thing is I can't have back shoes where I board due to risk of injury to other horses if kicked. I love the barn managers as they are great with the people and take excellent care of the horses so I have no desire to move. My vet suggested boots such as easyboots or renegades, maybe even the glue on versions could work.
My question is, has anyone used a boot long term while rehabbing the hoof? If so, what worked well for you?
