Easyboots on Board!
Notice the shoes?
I'm keeping busy contacting lots of nice people and companies to see whether they are interested in the project and am delighted to announce that the UK distributor of EasyCare Inc. is on board!
As we have done for the last 15 years, we will be using Easyboots for the trip. Which model remains to be decided nearer the time.
My horses are, as always, barefoot. As so many studies have shown over the years it is just the healthiest thing you can do for your horse's hooves as they can expand while pacing and thus allow for a natural "suspension" - an effect that is totally impossible on a horse with metal shoes. In addition of course it is a lot safer than expecting an animal to be safe and not slip walking along a road with metal under its feet!
It would be great if more people became interested in alternative hoof care - which just happens to be a lot cheaper than having the farrier come every couple of months - and would be so much nicer for the horses!
Thank you, EasyCare Inc. and Trelawne Equine Ltd. for your interest and I look forward to seeing more horses with rubber boots instead of metal nailed to their feet :o)
