Subject: Rubber bell boots


I turn my shod horses out with pull on ribbed rubber bell boots to prevent them from pulling shoes.  With the cold weather my pull on boots are harder to get on. Any recommendations for rubber bell boots with velcro of some type of easy open and close set up.

I dont buy any fancy rubber bell boots for turn out, I just buy the cheaper ones with velco and I get a size bigger so they will cover the back of the hoof almost touching the ground to protect the shoe, heres the ones I like buying. 

                                              I think I got these from Valley Vet and have bought from Jeffers and Stateline..

They are cheaper but last forever if they dont get torn in half, and if one gets lost I just replace it with a extra I have on hand, I always buy about 4 pairs at a time and its been at least 3 years since I have bought any more.

If you can soak them in warm/hot water for a few minutes and then slip them on.  I struggled with putting rubber bells on the horses for years before I learned this trick.  Hope it works for you!

I have Davis bell boots sitting in a valley vet cart just worried about the durability.

I had planned to put them in a heated room at the barn but the warm water idea is even better.  Thanks!

I use the KL Select Italian gum rubber bell boots. The natural colored ones pull on the best even in the cold weather, or the warm water trick helps too. They are a bit spendy but I have issues with the velcro holding up long enough to keep them on a horse that needed them during turnout.

The black Davis ones from tractor supply hold up the best with my gelding who wears them 24/7. The Velcro is much better than the $10 ones I was buying online all the time!

Davis, but they will rip the Velcro off, so I just saved the extras and used them or put holes in them and zip tied them on lol, I didn’t have a need to remove them daily...
