Re: RC: Easyboots

I've always REALLY liked the Slypner shoes.  They do a super job of
insulating the horse from the ground (re: concussion).  The horses also
really seem to like the traction they get - my fussy mare thinks they're
PF Flyers!  Another advantage is that the farrier can leave a lot more
heel on the shoe without the horse overreaching & pulling it off (my
theory is that's because the shoe is thicker from sole to ground).

Disadvantage is that my farrier gets a little cranky when I use them,
since they take a bit longer to put on and tolerate less banging.  They
also have to be shaped cold.

Good luck finding something you like.
