    I can only speak for myself.  The only time I use EZ
    Boots, unless my horse throws a shoe, is on
    multi-days.  I've hauled too far to have bad luck and
    find a rock with our name on it.
    Over the past 20 years, I've not been pulled from
    using an EZ Boot.  I have been pulled for a stone
    bruise on several occasions.  A conditioned horse with
    conditioned feet will find that rock occasionally.
