EasyCare has offered several different types of hoof boot suds over the years but I've personally never been 100% satisfied with our stud selection.
I would personally like a stud that could offer the following.
1. Install and removal while a hoof boot is on the hoof. For example it would be great to install or remove studs into the bottom of an Easyboot Glue-On for different conditions or days. One day may be icy, the next day may be dry.
2. I would like a stud that can be produced in different lengths. The studs could be changed out for different conditions.
3. The studs have to be affordable. There are some great studs on the market but four studs can cost more than an Easyboot.
I started searching the internet a couple weeks ago for studs used in car tires, ATVs, motorcycles and mountain bikes. The search revealed several studs that may work in our Easyboot and Old Mac's line.
We will keep you posted on the results and hope to add one of these affordable options after more testing.
