"Equilibrium Stretch and Flex Leg Wraps". The selling point for me was this - "These boots protect while breathable material keeps your horse's legs cool and comfortable. These boots are attractive, easy to use and great for hot weather". (quote and photos from Dover Saddlery).
So how do I like them? It's mixed. They truly are cooler, and that was the point. However, there's a learning curve to putting them on. When they say "stretch and flex", they mean it. You have to put them on a bit tighter than the usual boot, or they will slip. I hate tack that slips, and I'm not comfortable putting boots or wraps on very tightly for fear of injury, which of course is what we're trying to prevent! That said, I've found the happy snug fit where they're not tight, and they don't slip. The other issue is - I'm not sure they are tough enough to do much good should Precious give himself a good whack while playing. Oh, and the other-other issue is price. They are considerably more expensive than Dover's Pro boot. Of course after I bought them on sale at Dover, I found them much cheaper at Horse.com.

Looking back at these old photos, I'm very pleased that Paj looks so much better now. His muscling is better, his coat is shiny and his tail is full and thick. We must be doing something right! (But what was I thinking, turning him out bare legged?!?)
