Ice boots are ideal.

Ice aids innumerable injuries. OK, we knew that, right?

Ask any horse owner, who has spent hours cold-hosing an equine leg. That may be a fairly simple endeavor in the summertime, when the horse stands somewhat contentedly, particularly if the process takes place near a grassy spot.

But in inclement or colder weather, this can be more trying.

Enter the ice boot.

Here are a few examples.

Ice boots strap on, usually with Velcro-type fasteners. Much simpler!

NOTE: Some ice boots are sized for various equines – such as draft, horse, mini, or pony. Others are tagged as universal. It pays to check before buying.

  1. Ah, we never encountered weather that bad when we had horses when I was growing up. It was central California. To be honest, I don't remember that well because it was a long time ago. :)
