Hoof boot advice
The hoof boot world can be quite overwhelming but I'd like to help you.
I can assist in measuring your horse's hooves. Making an appointment for size measuring should be scheduled between 1 to 14 days after a trim. Once we know the shape of the hoof and the exact sizes, I can show you which hoof boot styles will fit your horse best. I also have fitting shells of Cavallo and Scootboot hoof boots.
Red Horse Products
I stock natural hoof care products from Red Horse and I bring them with on hoof consultations. You can also collect in Glen Maye. Go to the website of Red Horse for specific product details: www.redhorseproducts.co.uk
At the moment, I am busy stocking some other hoof related products, like soaking boots, vet wrap, poultices, iodine, essential oils, empty spray bottles and duck tape. This way I can supply you, my client, then and there with what you need without you having to search around the island. I know from experience this costs a lot of time, fuel and energy.
Is your horse shod but are you not happy with how they look and / or perform? I'd be more then happy to have a look and chat. Get in touch here
During a trim I like to see a horse that's able to stand and give and hold it's hoof without much problems. Safety and comfort does come first, both for me ánd the horse. I feel I have the right to stop an appointment if I don't feel safe.
A clean and dry floor to work on are much appreciated. This will make my visit quicker which is in favor of the horse too. Same goes for clean / dry hooves because muddy or wet hooves damage my tools and it will make the job slippery.
