Manufacturer: Old Mac Boots
Model: OM1002 Old Mac's Horse Boots Size 6
Category: Horse Boots and Wraps

Purchase: I ordered them from the website WWW.oldmac.com, in October 2004. I paid $145.00 for them but figured that If I was paying for shoes at $40 every 6-8 weeks then after 4 shoeings they would pay for themselves. and my horses are barefoot during my no ride time. I ride trails and work cattle with them and have never had a problem. I feel they are easy to get on once you figured it out and now my gelding who had been foundered before I got him and has no hoof wall so his sole is on the ground does not want me to take them off. It is a struggle to get him to let me do so, other wise he wares them 24/7 out at pasture with 12 other horses, so he moves around alot ince he is the zeta horse. Winter time I do take them off because they do wear on his heels and once or twice a week I leave them off for the day so his feet can air and see the sun. Other wise they are holding up very well in our irrigated pasture. I did have to buy the pasturn wraps to protect his heels but otherwise they too have held up great. I have also bought the sole releif and frog relief pads both pads have helped his sole to grow back and become stronger.

Likes: I like everything about them. They do their job. they supoort his feet. He is more than happy to work for you under saddle with them on. This is what has kept me from selling him. Even my farrier is impressed by them and has recomended them to his clients after seeing how they work with my gelding.

Dislikes: Having to clean them. dirt and hair does accumulate inside but other wise not a big deal....Only thing I have a problem with is the metal ribbets that rub the front of his hoof at the hair line. I've covered it with duc tape and that has cured it.

Quality: The nylon strap that really holds the boot on is the cause of rubbing but very durable. the outer shell of condura is even more durable. the final leather buckle to keep the whole boot together is easy to use and rust proof. The leather ribbing at the top of the Condura cover is great in protecting and keeping the debrey out of the boots. the treads have not shown much wear yet.

Summary: Wish I had bought them 2 years earlyer when I first was shown a pair and had bought my gelding so we could have done more. I had over that time not been shoeing my horses but did not ride as much either because of thier feet. But now will be buying another set for my mare. but I can use the same pair on both horses right now since I can only ride one at a time. I do have the horses trimed every 6 weeks which helps keep the boots in place. This is a big neccessary to keep their feet trimed if on 24/7 since they do not wear the hoof down.
