    Default Boots, bandages the like

    I have been told since my inception into this sport that if you "dress" one leg, you MUST do the same for the opposite leg.

    Recently, the chiro recommended putting a boot on my horse's lazy leg, only that leg. I am honestly having mental issues doing this.

    Opinions?

    What is making your horses leg "lazy"? Is he/she dragging a toe or something? Did the chiro recommend only booting during riding, turnout, or both? I too have always done my bandaging in two's. So, is it possible to wrap them both, but somehow put a tiny bit more weight in the lazy one? Just a thought.
