Manufacturer: Hock Shield
Model: Protective Boot
Category: Horse Boots and Wraps

Purchase: I purchased the hock shield protective boots from smartipony on line for 40.00 after failing miserably to protect my thoroughbred's hocks with my own padding, duct tape and wraps. He spends 3 seasons outside 24/7 in a paddock (with a soft surface run in shelter) and never gets hock abrasions until winter. He comes in for approximately 12 hours (Michigan winter) and despite his 5 inch sawdust bedding, he begins to lose hock hair.

Likes: The pad is durable, easy to apply and remove yet stays in place all night long. They do not spin around and my horse had no reaction to applying or removing them. When they were first applied I decided to longe him at walk, trot and canter to further evaluate their effectiveness. These are a winner.

Dislikes: There is nothing I do not like about them. I personally would prefer sheepskin as opposed to fleece but I am very pleased with them.

Quality: The construction and quality is well thought out.

Summary: Don't waste your time trying to manage hock abrasions on your own (and please do not wait until your horse has lesions that scab or bleed as they are very likely to become infected). Buy these and avoid spending a lot more money on vet bills, medications and deeper bedding.
