has anyone used easy boots or any other boots on a regular basis? i bought some boots on saturday. i took a print of my horses hooves with me and slid them into the boots. it fit into a size 2, but, the rep said i should get a size 3, that there should be room for the hoof to expand. but, they seem larger that i would have thought. i can just get my pinky down between the hoof and the boot, but, the top of the boot seems too large. i expected it to fit snug right around his pastern but it doesn't.
they seem a bit sloppy, kind of like wearing gumboots, but, they don't twist around at all. i had him trot and canter in them and while he wasn't crazy about the first time wearing them, they basically stayed in place.
also, when i took them off, there was a bit of gravel from the arena sitting in the hollow above the bulb of his hoof, so, then i'm wondering if he might get blisters of something from gravel sitting in there.
i know i can't return these as we used them in a wet ring, but, i don't want to waste money on a size 2 if this is the way they're supposed to fit.
