I got a Davis soaking boot to try to protect my horse's hoof (recovering from an abscess) in turn-out. I soaked his foot yesterday night, packed it with ichthammol, and put the boot on top. This morning I couldn't for the life of me remove the darn thing...
I tried using hot water (similar to putting bell boots on and off) but it didn't work. I don't really want to cut it off if it can be avoided as I just bought it. Any suggestions?
Might just need some air in the boot to release the vacuum seal that sometimes happens(always happens to me!). Using a hoof pick at the back of the boot to try and get some air in there might help. Otherwise... Vaseline! Or hand lotion might squish around a bit more.
