Horse Boots and Wraps
Manufacturer: Old Mac's
Model: Pastern Wraps
Category: Horse Boots and Wraps
Purchase: No price paid, they were included with a pair of Original Old Mac's hoof boots.
Likes: Once you do manage to get these on - they do provide protection to the pastern. It has been my experience that some horses are far more sensitive than others in the pastern area - and really need protection when using the Old Mac boots (Originals or G2's).
Dislikes: The intended purpose of these "wraps" is to "provide extra protection to the pastern area when chaffing might be a problem". This they do appear to effectively do. HOWEVER, Old Mac's Pastern Wraps are not worth the space they take up on the planet. These are "tube" shaped, they are NOT wraps (i.e., one cannot wrap them around and velcro them together analogous to bell boots). It is a mystery as to why the manufacturer included the word "wrap" in this product's name.
These are EXTREMELY difficult to get on. As stated, they are a closed tube shape; one must pull them up over the hoof to get them on (there is no other means of getting them on). Notice that no manufacturer "videos" exist showing how "easy" these are to "pop right on".
I have used Old Mac's boots for years, and think the boots are a great product, however, these "wraps" are so horrible I wonder why Old Mac's would associate their name with something as poorly designed as these "wraps".
Quality: The materials that this product is constructed of are of "middle of the road" quality. The construction - as far as design - is so bad it is difficult to believe it was released onto the unsuspecting public.
Summary: Do not waste your money on this product. There are other products that actually WRAP around the pastern and provide equal or better protection than do these "pastern tubes".
