I got these for my laminitic horse and they have made all the difference! I started with a pair of Soft Ride boots, which both vet and farrier highly recommended. But, after one trim those ended up too large. These looked easier to manage and I liked the flat pads that come with them (Soft Ride have a frog support that actually ended up compressing my boy's frogs). These boots are SO much easier to put on! One caution - they seemed almost too snug at first, with it being hard to get the straps fully above the coronet - but just a couple of hours of him walking in them and they loosened enough that they now easily fit on. Keep an eye on the wear in the pads and be prepared to replace them if they compress too much. I'm three weeks in and just replacing them for mine who is wearing these 24/7. Boots are dirty but still in great shape!
These boots are AMAZING. Our senior QH has very thin soles, and after discussing different shoeing options, we decided to try the Cloud Boots. It was the best decision we could've made. He wears these out in the pasture and in the dry lot, and he runs around like a youngster; there's no limping or painful walking when he's wearing these boots. Additionally, we purchased the snow studs, and these boots eliminate dangerous hoof "snowballs." Would absolutely recommend!
I ordered this several months ago to have on hand in my first aid cabinet. Just so happens my mare stepped on a nail and is currently drawing an infection out because of the puncture wound. I was wrapping it but with her being stalled I couldn’t keep it dry. I broke the boot out and decided to give it a try as she likes to destroy things when I’m not looking. 3 days later, even being turned out in a small area, and it’s holding up well. Made very well and is super comfortable for her. I sized up so bandaging could fit. I may order a second one for the other side to balance the weight for her. Highly recommend. Much better, in my opinion, than the Easyboot RX which I have also used in the past.
My old retired horse is so much more comfortable now. Easy on and off, just fold down the back. Best price around that I found
My daugthers horse had laminitis and requires special shoes from the farrier. She kept loosing one or both shoes earlier than his rotation. She ended up lame and in pain. Our vet suggested these boots. Honestly, I didn't have alot of hope as her mare was not walking and didn't want too. After a few days I saw an improvement, after a week she was moving good. Fast forward a month and we now have purchased a second pair. We keep her mare in them for 2-3 days, checking them everyday (stuff does sometimes get in the boot like shavings, grass etc and they do get wet from the dew). We take them off for 12-24 hours, wash the boots in dawn and cool water and place them on our porch to dry (they do have a bad smell but this is normal - check out the boot manufactrer site for tips). We put the dry pair on while the first is drying. She is now walking GREAT!! I HIGHLY recommend these shoes.
My mare got a touch of laminitis this fall. I purchased the other brand of therapeutic boots on the advice of my vet, but after a week they rubbed sores on her coronary bands so my farrier had me try these. She has worn these for two weeks with no issues.
Easyboots are sturdy and provide great comfort. Chewy has the best price and free shipping.
I bought these for a horse going through mild laminitis. They have not held up well at all. He goes from his stall to a very small paddock area for a few hours a day. He barely walks around, and they are falling apart in less than 2 months
There was 180° Difference between my horse walking into the barn without boots and walking out of the barn with cloud boots on. WOW. The boots worked great and they were recommended by my Farrier after a mild bout of laminitis. After seeing the difference I highly recommend them.
These saved my 32-year-old pony's life. He developed laminitis and I feared I would need to euthanize him because he was in so much pain. After wearing the boots for an hour he was IMMEDIATELY up on his feet and acting like he felt so much better. My vet and I left him in the boots for 4 weeks (taking off to check feet every couple days) and then tried him without them. He didn't need them anymore. He is taking a Cushing's medication and low-impact pain meds daily, and getting regular farrier trims, and hasn't acted like he's in pain since. I will keep them just in case. The boots have literally bought him a longer lifetime. Well worth the price. Easy on and off. I bought the next size up since reviews sounded like they were tight, and that proved to be correct. Thanks EasyCare!
