Ice Horse BootsMohawk Boots
... Developed for the treatment of back pain in the horse, which is particularly frequent in competitive ponies. The contours offer maximal cover of shoulders and shoulders, along the spinal column and above the sacroiliac hinge........
Emergency Wrap ensures even cover and pressure..... The ice pack forms the horse's feet for.....
Ice pouches remain cool for over two hours - 3 times longer than ice gel or bucket. Cool-captured ice packages adapt to the horse's feet for optimum cover. We use Quadrispan, a non-neoprene anti-migration material, to produce our wrap. It is a uniquely breatheable material that keeps the compresses on the horse's foot and compresses the ice against the area to be protected; the breatheable material has a fine migratory technique to hold the compresses in place and compresses the ice against the area to be protected.
Once you're done, just put your backpacks back in the fridge.
Large Black Ice Horse Boots
Loving my big black boots. I would certainly give the initial designs a 5-star evaluation, they are long-lasting, efficient and simple to use. I recently got a second couple for use in an urgent laminite session in which I would freeze my hoofs several days a day.
This new couple came to my initial couple with some difference. Removal of the outer synthetic crossmember on the lower outside, which slightly supports the soles and the worm, so that the outer carrier made of rigid synthetic remains only at the rim. It seems to keep the hooves of a Laminite horse only on the walls of the hooves, which could lead to more shaving and separating - the things you ice up with the hooves to avert!
The horse or bangs with hoofs smaller than the outer supporting structure would have no assistance. With the new look, 3 ice-bag covers were added to ensure 360 degrees of refrigeration - the concept of surrounding the whole boot with ice is a good one, but these pockets are just a little too small for firmstice ice boxes (strange, as the same firm offers both the ice boxes and the boots).
There is a difficulty with the large number of Velcro fasteners on the sewn-in covers. Most likely designed to hold the covers together to embrace the hooves with ice (good idea!), the straps are "hooks" and the whole area of the boots functions as "loop".
You can make quite a mess of it by loosing the ice age for the horse and inflicting disappointment on the people. This makes it even simpler to place the boots quickly. It is an important characteristic if your horse feels unwell on its hoofs. hint = the old style opens almost as far and continues very quickly.
This new designer boots is made of lightweight materials and therefore will dry out faster between inserts. I' ve taken these boots apart to use them. So I loosened the "too small" ice covers, facilitated the introduction of the spruce into the cover & enabled the free introduction of the coolant into the bootsuit pouch (I am planning spare bags - slightly larger).
I' ve added a base to help the soles and the frogs. Removing any surplus Velcro straps, I let the compression of the enclosed outer bootshield keep the coolant against the hooves. I was able to use them with these changes, alternately with my initial couple for my repeated freezing seasons every week for several months, BUT in my view they are not as good as the initial one.
It is my guess - and my hopes - that they are a further development of the Big Black Boot designs from Very Good to Even Better. If you are considering purchasing this model = see if you can find a used couple of the initial scheme, be ready to make new charges of the new scheme, or just sit back and see what the next one is.
