If I had a nickel for every time I heard a customer ask "will that boot stay on?", I'd be rich man. Honestly, the answer is simple: yes, if it fits. The importance of fit can not be underestimated when it comes to having success in EasyCare boots. It amazes me that measuring for hoof boots is often times viewed as a huge inconvenience. Honestly folks, it is a straightforward and easy process.
I've heard people say "Well, he's a Thoroughbred so he's a size 3." Really? Guessing the correct size boot is not a valid option – keep in mind that at full speed a 1,000 pound Thoroughbred will place the equivalent of 100 times the force of gravity on each hoof with every stride, so fit is highly important. Imagine the following.
This boot is not a good fit – the large gap at the rear of the boot indicates
it's several sizes too big. Accurate measurements are a must!
Wide load! On the flip side, this fit is several sizes too small.
No-one wants a muffin top.
Yes, I know I am pushing things a bit to the extreme here, but selecting the correct fit is the single most important thing your customers can do to make sure that they get the most out of their EasyCare hoof boots.
