We have received an overwhelming number of e-mails regarding the decision to introduce a wide version of the Easyboot Glove and Easyboot Glue-On. The majority of the feedback has been very positive and everyone would like us to hurry. 

We agree that we need a wide boot. We now need your help with the shape of this new wide boot. The more help and feedback we receive will allow us to get the design right on the first mold. We can then quickly introduce a full range of sizes based on your feedback. 

We need all the people who are excited about this new wide design to e-mail a photo and measurements of your horse’s wide feet in millimeters. We need a photo of the bottom of the wide foot – just like the one below on the left. We then need a second photo with a ruler (see red line on second photo) across the widest point of the hoof. No need to add a red line, just position the ruler at the widest point using the red line as an example. 

The foot above is not a good example of a wide hoof but an example of the photos we are looking for. These feet measure 126mm wide x 134mm long. 

A second example of photos we are looking for. Again, this horse does not have wide feet. These feet measure 124mm wide x 127mm long. 

Length measurements should be taken from the toe to the furthest weight-bearing point of the heel. Width measurements should be taken at the widest point of the hoof. Remember – please supply measurements in millimeters. Please e-mail the photos to admin@easycareinc.com with the subject line "Wide Hoof Photos".
