What are hoof care professionals saying about the new EasyShoe Versa Grip Octo? Kristen Gonyaw shares her initial impressions after the first application.
“I was truly impressed how simple the process was for applying this shoe. I love that the horse can stand while gluing the tabs. This would take a lot of strain off a horse who has a hard time picking their feet up for longer periods of time, not to mention making it easier on the farrier too. I am very excited to see them thriving in our wet, east coast conditions and I am absolutely looking forward to using them again in the future!”
After holding strong for 11 weeks, Kristen removed and reset this pair of Octos. Here’s what she has to say about the process.
The end result? They still won’t come off!
I am beyond impressed with this product and absolutely love that even with a few separated tabs the shoe still stayed on perfectly without any hoof wall damage from leveraging. The Octo performed exactly how I would have wanted it to in that situation and the glue bond was still strong enough that the tabs stayed put. They are so easy to remove – use your nippers to separate the top of the tab and peel it down. Feet looked fantastic.
Super Glue for the win!!!”
