A Neighbor Cares Enough to Save HimI was finally able to convince his owners to sell him and I loaded him on my trailer 10 seconds after they agreed! I drove him the hour and a half to my vet. He was examined and X-rayed. It turns out the barbed wire had damaged his pastern joint. Because he was left without any medical care, he had developed arthritis. The large hard lump on his pastern had calcified into bone and it will always be there. The prognosis wasn't great. We just didn't know if he'd ever be sound enough to ride, or even sound enough to be a "pasture puff".
A Wise Farrier Steps In...[caption id="attachment_21886" align="alignleft" width="372"] Ashley Peake and her Beloved Horse, Gunner[/caption] So I began a course of injections that had little effect. He was then put on another medication and the improvement was rapid and dramatic. By the third day he was galloping! It was amazing to watch him gallop across the field after seeing him struggle to walk for 8 months. We slowly began riding. But if we encountered any kind of rocks at all he immediately went lame. Pavement was another trouble area for him. My first inclination was to shoe him, but bless my farrier's heart for caring more about the horse than his pocketbook. He suggested that I try hoof boots first, as he believed the steel shoes would irritate his arthritis and do more harm than good. So we searched and searched and I ordered a pair of Cavallos.
Cavallos to the Rescue!The day they arrived I raced out to try them on him and they fit perfectly. We headed out for a ride and he cruised over pavement and the rockiest terrain like it was nothing! He was like a brand new horse. He's now had his Cavallos for a year and he never goes out on the trail without them. I'm going to order another pair so he has a backup. And during the winter when the ground gets very hard, he wears his boots during turnout and they keep him comfortable and provide better traction. Cavallo boots gave my horse a second chance at doing what he loves to do - go riding.
Recommended by THIS Horse OwnerI recommend them to everyone and most of my friends have switched to Cavallo Boots for their horses after seeing what they've done for mine. They're easy to put on and take off, and I've never had problems with rubs or coming off during a ride. Even in rough terrain and deep mud the boots stay put. I also use the Cavallo Pastern Wraps, I love how they kind of mold to the horses heel bulbs and pastern to provide an exact fit. They keep them comfortable and protected from any potential cuts or scrapes. As long as I have horses I will have Cavallo Boots! Thank you for making such an amazing product for our beloved horses! - Ashley Peake
A Pastern Joint Injury Left him with Arthritis...
SIMPLE Boots save the day! Two weeks before our planned riding vacation, one of our horses came up limping and we were concerned we couldn’t go. I ordered the SIMPLE Hoof Boots and was happily surprised to see that as soon as I put the boots on, he stopped limping right away and was fine as long as the boots were on. On the trip, we were able to ride over very rocky, difficult terrain with ease, and I know we could not have done so without the Simple Boots. When we returned from vacation, we found that his hoof had healed during the ride. Thank you for a wonderful product ... we're just tickled pink!
