EasyCare has been working on some boot designs based on a pivoting concept brought to us by Shelly Burr. Shelly came to us early in the year with some working prototypes after her patent provisional and patent application had been submitted. We liked the designs and believed the boot could both provide comfort and promote movement. Movement is often the key between life and death for these horses and if we could help save life of these horses we were on board.

Prototypes continue to move along and we anticipate releasing a boot in ten sizes by early 2015. The Easyboot Cloud will come with both a pivot option and a non pivot option. In addition we are working on the ability to add the pivot bottom to other Easyboot styles.

We are working on lightweight padding materials for added comfort.

We are looking forward to getting the Easyboot Cloud released and believe it will have a place in vet clinics. It won’t be a huge market but we believe it will help horses. And helping horses is what it’s all about.
