Just curious who has used these, for what reasons, and what your results were. I ordered some and am going to try them on a horse that needs significantly reduced breakover but am curious to know of others' experiences.
My farrier makes them out of wood, and they work great. I've used them on 2 of our horses (and posted threads about them years ago), and seen them be used many other times. The most recent thread had lots of good info, Fran Jurga even came and posted, and we found Steward Clog boots
Thanks FP. I do remember a couple of the older threads now, thanks for the jostling my memory.
Are you talking about the Dallmer Clogs? I've been really interested in those for quite a while but haven't wanted to spend the $$$$ to try them out. I've seen that the Steward clogs can be attached to the Dallmer clogs to create a sort of removable super clog
Although I use a lot of different treatment packages, I have used Stewart clogs (the plastic ones) them as treatment shoeing for laminitis ,founder, ringbone and collateral ligament injuries and quite a few undiagnosed "vague lameness" when a lot of breakover all around the foot would be helpful.
I saw something made by equicast of heavy duty foam like stuff in a clog form, that can be put on with equicast. Sadly they only had 1 of my horse's size available
I *think* this is them, but the picture on the website is pretty crappy, so I can't tell if it's the same thing I had in my hands this PM. http://onlinestore.equicast.us/evash...tis-1-1-1.aspx
"Which one (EVA or Wooden Shoe) should be used?
There are two answers to this question! First is your comfort zone level. The wooden shoes require either screwing sheet rock screws into the hoof and then the wooden shoe or gluing the Wooden Shoe onto the hoof. The benefit of the EVA Shoe is once the hoof is positioned on the EVA Shoe - Equicast is wrapped around the circumference of both the hoof and EVA Shoe to secure the EVA Shoe to the hoof. The answer to the other part of EVA/Wooden Shoes is medial lateral sinkers or sheered heels I prefer Wooden Shoes because of the added stability that the wood provides. " http://www.equicast.com/
