How about notching the top rim of the boot (horse A gets one notch, horse B gets 2, etc.) at the outside corner of the boot (right quarter for RF foot, right heel for RH, left quarter for LF, left heel for LH)?

A farrier generally knocks a mark in the outside heel of the shoe to tell them apart, but a steel shoe looks different front to hind ...

Okay, now the question is, do people generally rotate their easyboots to maintain consistent wear?  (My nephew is a serious rollerblader, and my brother has a special pattern for rotating his skate wheels, like a car.)
