I’ve got a large Tb x Stockhorse that I event with, unfortunately he feels the ground a little and has had some bruising in his feet.
I ice him a lot after work To help manage this and was looking for some way of wrapping his feet with ice as standing in ice water wouldn’t be good for the pads in his shoes.
I was excited to come across the horse desires bells boots which have built in inserts to place ice and Purchased some straight away. In addition they were sent out with a dry ice product from Cryolux, these strips are bloody amazing! Easy to freeze, bendable so you can manipulate them a little to fit in boots. And they stay super super cold!!
I’ve ordered some more to use in some existing ice boots I have as they are colder and easier to use than the inserts they came with.
Highly recommend the bell boots for anyone with horses suffering inflammation in their hooves. The dry ice is also useful to use in any tricky places that require icing.
They stay cold for a long time too so can be used over and over at an event.
