A new tool for farriers and hoofcare professionals. The new glue-on urethane shoe is a collaboration between EasyCare and No-Anvil. The combined efforts have produced a new urethane hoof protection device that blur the lines between boots and shoes. The urethane hybrid device absorbs concussion, is held securely in place for a shoeing cycle without nails, is lighter weight than most all nail on shoes and allows the hoof to expand and contract as nature intended.

2. The urethane shoe has an internal moldable skeleton for structure and shaping.
3. The integrally molded cuff increases the gluing surface area.
4. The urethane shoe and cuff allow the hoof to expand and contract.
