    Default what's that boot called that helps keep shoes on and opinions

    I am having a heck of a time keeping shoes on my horse out in his paddock - I have resorted to duck tape but I think I need to try those yellow boots but I can't remember what they are called.

    Also any opinions and do they come big enough for a size 4 shoe.

    They're not "boots" in that they don't cover the whole foot, just the back of the shoe/heel bulb.

    I got a pair a couple of months ago for my gelding who pulls shoes all the time. As a side note, I have a great farrier and we've tried just about everything to keep the shoes on to no avail.

    The shoe secure things have been a godsend! It's a little annoying to have to take them off to ride and put them back on, but way less annoying than walking the field to find a shoe.....again.

    My only complaint is that I wish they were a little thinner on the bottom. They effectively wedge the foot a bit, and so I'm leery about leaving them on 24/7 when the ground is firm (I don't worry about it as much when it's muddy out).

    The company also has a "ride in" model, and I'm really interested to see how those differ.

    The best reason to try Bing . . . because it's NOT Google. ;-)

    I'd also add that I've used Easyboots over shoes for muddy paddock conditions. I cleaned them out daily.

    You know, the title sounded like you wanted boots that help contain/hold your shoes AND your opinions.
