Re: RC: Stuck on Easy Boots
I use Vaseline above the hoof at coronary band to prevent foam from sticking to
hair....I also use TWO screwdrivers to pry off "foamed" easyboots. After a bit of
practice it is not too bad to take them off. I have never had my foam stay on the
horses hooves, but I have spent hours around the campfire removing the foam from
the boots with needle nose pliers.
