I got home from the Mt. Carmel XP to find Ricky Bobby still quite sore after shedding his sole a little more than a week ago. Rather than putting Easyboot Gloves back on him, I’m using this week’s post as an excuse to show the application process of the Easyboot Glue-Ons.
I’m applying the boots to add a level of comfort for the horse for the next week to ten days. The Goober Glue under the sole acts as a comfort pad: it remains soft even when it has set up. The Adhere around the shell wall helps keep the boot in place during the six-hour timeframe it takes for the Goober Glue to set up completely.
More and more people are trying the glue-on boots, especially at multi-days and 100-mile events. Some people think it is too complicated to do it themselves. Others seem not to be using a gluing protocol that is necessarily dependable. This video should answer some questions.
The video below is one of a few gluing options. I think it is the simplest system for gluing, but it is certainly not the only one. You can use this system if you don’t have anyone to help you. Here’s what you need:
1. Wire Brush
2. Easyboot Glue-On Shells
3. Goober Glue & Caulking Gun
4. Equi-Pak Adhere & Gun
5. Rubber Mallett
This is not an official EasyCare application video: I had challenges with the camera battery and the noise of the wind. We plan to have an official gluing video done within the next month.
Let me know if you have questions or feedback.
