Re: [RC] Some tough questions for those that sell the Boots.. - Truman Prevatt

Hi Karen,

I never considered interference, but if a horse is close to start with - it sure could happen. I have used EZ boots them a few times and my experience is they work best as "spare tires" in an emergency. I, however, have used the Bosana boots when I didn't want to pad and they seem to work fine - at least with my horse - for that.

There is also the possibility of the width and extra bulk bothering the

weight of the newer boots (which is more than the older EZ boots from about
6 years ago) is enough to change the flight pattern and cause troubles as

My one horse is much happier and doesn't beat up his legs with steel shoes
on like he does with boots.  The other one goes well either way.  It's all
an individual thing.  But, I think if you have a horse that has to have
major surgery done for his shoes to fit correctly, he's a less likely
candidate to go in boots successfully.

I agree with everything you say below, Truman.
