EasyCare loves all hooves equally but we do have a boot style called the Easyboot Glove that is very picky about what hooves can wear it. Below, I have listed the "DOs" that will increase your chance of success with the Easyboot Glove. I have also listed some "DON'Ts" for when the Easyboot Glove is not suitable. Don't worry, if your horse's hooves don't work with the Glove, EasyCare has numerous other boot styles. Just to prove that we don't discriminate, we also have some styles available in a wide version for the "fuller hooves"!
Easyboot Glove DOs:
- use on a bare hoof
- use on a hoof free of pathology
- use on a hoof with a four week or shorter trim cycle (or maintenance rasping if on a longer trim cycle)
Easyboot Glove DON'Ts:
- use on a hoof with high heels
- use on a hoof with flare
- use on a hoof with long toes
- use on a hoof with a trim cycle longer than four weeks
Since the Glove is measured for in millimeters, it needs to fit the hoof snugly (like a Glove). If you are interested in this boot style, we strongly recommend ordering a Fit Kit. The cost to use a kit is only $12.00 and it is well worth every penny. The kit will help you determine the perfect fit without having to pay to return boots that are not the correct size. If you have any questions regarding our products or sizing please feel free to contact our customer service department at 800.447.8836.
If you call the customer service help desk, you’ll probably get me on the phone! I process repairs, returns, credits and exchanges that come into EasyCare.
