Purchase: In the spring of 2005, my daughter's mare founder on grass. For almost a year, with careful monitoring, she has been fine. Due to my mother in laws cancer, we have not spent as much time with her seeing to her continuous needs (monitoring what she eats) as we normally have in the past. Needless to say, she had a sever relapse. She was in such severe pain, that she could not stand or walk for long periods of time. Every step she took seemed to send shards of pain through out her body. So, I decided to pull all for shoes and try the Davis Barrier Boot. I purchased these at my local Farmer's Coop for about $25.00 each. The boot is all rubber with a horse shoe design on the bottom for traction and to also keep her frogs from the impact of the ground. They have a cinch on the back to help keep them on.

Likes: These boots allow her to walk with no pain. Her hooves and frogs are not impacting with the ground. The boots are easy to put on with minimal difficultly. These boots have actually made a huge improvement in her ability to move around. You can't tell she's the same mare now that she was 2 months ago. They also stay on quiet well in a stable if needed, or in a small lot for grazing.

Dislikes: The boots are not made to stay on for extended periods of time. They need to be removed every other day or so to be sanitized and to let the hooves dry overnight to prevent fungus. They also don't stay on very well in a pasture setting. We keep this mare stabled or in a small lot near the barn. But, she got out of the barn lot into one of our large pastures. Since she had been in a small lot, she decided to stretch her legs at a dead run. (I'm glad she can now do that again, thanks to these boots.) But, the boots were all over the pasture when I got her back to the barn. Not one of the boots stayed on while she was in the large pasture.

Quality: These boots are made of rubber with a horse shoe shaped tread on the bottom. They have a nylon adjustable strap at the back to help them stay on. They can also be trimmed if they rub the horse at the top of the boot.

Summary: Well worth the money for these boots for a founder horse, mule, etc.
