Newsflash! We’ve just published the white paper study by Duncan McLaughlin that used infrared thermography to evaluate temperature variances in horses’ feet before and after exercise.
Infrared thermography provides objective data about circulation and inflammation within the hoof by measuring temperature increases and changes in heat patterns.
Consider this: horses competing with steel shoes had an average dorsal hoof-wall temperature increase of 8.9°C /16.1°F when comparing their pre-ride and post-ride temperatures.
By contrast, the average dorsal hoof-wall temperature increase in horses wearing hoof boots was 2.9°C/5.2°F.
We’ve also used this technology to analyze changes in hoof temperature caused by the use of black Easyboots. The results are fascinating.

I am responsible for the marketing and branding of the EasyCare product line. I believe there is a great deal to be gained from the strategy of using booted protection for horses, no matter what the job you have for your horse.
