    Default Cavallo Hoof Boot Advertising. Honest? Nonsense!!!!

    Quote from Equus magazine ad.

    Why nail metal into live tissue?
    why inhibit blood circulation?
    Why hinder hoof mechanism?
    Why create concussion?
    Why diminish nutrients to hoof tissue?

    Why Not use their product!!

    This is honest advertising?

    Guess who won't be buying their products?
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Why start a thread that won't be able to stay civil for more than a couple of hours?

    OK all my horses wear 4 shoes each but.....I bought the cavallos years ago to use for thrown shoes or loose shoes and they were pretty good at keeping the shoe on or the hoof protected for a day or so till farrier could come by and reset the shoe(s). I subsequently gave them away to another Cother when I got my horses hooves back in shape to keep their shoes on.

    A good product, but not a reason to give up those nails I have the farrier stab their hooves with every 6 weeks.

    It's honest because that's what they believe...and that is all that matters in advertising and politics. Facts? Don't need 'em, opinion and passion rules.

    Having said that, a bad farrier will cause a horse to suffer from any or all of those things on their list, so count yourself lucky when you have a good farrier!

    Over-the-top advertising to cater to the fears of uneducated head-nodders is not unique to the horse boot business.

    Stupid advertising. Good product. I have used them quite a bit including galloping sets on rock logging roads (I always booted with open front eskadrons). They worked WAY better than easy boots, and I didn't need shoes on this very good footed horse for her arena work, so they served a purpose quite well.
