You can place a bell boot over the medicine boot to prevent the horse from overreaching and stepping on it. The boot has a grooved sole for traction and a strong, flexible Kevlar interior. This is not a permanent, indestructible boot, but one designed for one or more hoof treatments. If only used for a few days at a time, it would be reusable for multiple hoof treatments. If your horse is a "gentle on boots and blankets" type, the boot may last longer.
The Woof Wear boot must fit very closely to prevent shavings, dirt, and debris from getting inside. The asymmetrical zipper helps maintain a close, secure fit and has a neoprene hood to prevent skin contact. The boot must not fall off or be loose enough for your horse to step on it with another hoof, so measuring accurately is important. Measure the width of your horse's hoof, across the frog, wall to wall. Consult the size guide. Do not size up.
