This new glue-on boot
is a flip-flop design with a conventional upper that extends to the
widest point of the hoof. This part of the hoof has the least amount of
movement in both the vertical and horizontal planes. Because of this
lack of movement, the bonds between the shoe and the hoof hold much
tighter and are less likely to fail than at the heel.
The result is a hoof protection device that is more
durable than composite shoes bonded along the entire sides of the hoof
wall. The absence of an upper in the rear half of the shoe ensures that
the heel and the entire back portion of the shoe are not connected to
the hoof. The heel is afforded greater movement in all directions, which
increases durability of the bond between the upper and the front
portion of the hoof. The long-term effect of increased hoof flexion is a
highly developed vascular system and a healthier hoof.
This product is the easiest of our glue-on boots and
shoes to apply, and stays on the better than any glue-on product. The
product has won several 50-mile distance races.
- Easy to apply and it stays on well.
- The back of the foot is protected but still
functions as a bare hoof, allowing the hoof to function better than in
full shell products.
- Debris goes in and comes out easily. For those with concerns, it's easy to add a pour in packing in the toe area.
- May be used in conjunction with the EasyCare Therapy Click System.
