Splash is an athletic, opinionated, gorgeous mare. She is my dream horse and in the three years that I have owned her we have developed a mutually respectful relationship.
I have always used Easyboot Gloves on her. I ride trails all year round and the Gloves have never let me down.
Recently she injured a tendon and was put on stall rest. The tendon was ultra sounded by my vet and determined that it was a minor strain. This was good news, as I know tendon injuries can often require long recovery time, and sometimes even worse. Unfortunately, about three weeks out from the tendon injury, I had just increased her paddock size, and she developed laminitis from a yet to be determined cause.
With the development of laminitis, she had to go back to stall rest, pads taped to her feet, and deep bedding. The pads did not reliably stay on. It was frustrating to check on her and find one, or both pads gone, buried in the shavings, and her digital pulses bounding again.
Out come the Gloves! I put pads into the Gloves, slipped them on, fastened the Velcro, and behold, she's comfortable and they are secure.
I clean out the boots twice a day, check the pads to make sure they are still providing some cushion, and walk away (off to work), confident she is going to be comfortable and continue to improve in her Gloves.
Thank you EasyCare for making such a great product!
