The Hock Shield is a custom fit hock protector designed to STAY IN PLACE to prevent and heal hock sores.
Finally, horse hock sore boots that stay on!
If a horse has a hock injury or bed sore, repeated lying down can aggravate it and prevent healing. Some sores just become larger and/or deeper. The healing process cannot take place unless a protective layer is placed between the ground and the skin.
These really work!I bought a medium pair for my mare who measures 15" around her hock. I wasn't sure if I should get the bigger size, but Medium is perfect. The elastic will give a little over time. She is an active horse and these hock boots really stay. This is a great product and I'm so pleased.Written by Pam Jones on Mon 18 Feb 2013 12:31:55 AM GMT
Hock shieldsMy horse had stiffle surgery. When he laid down he did it very hard and tore uo his hocks. I bought one pair that lasted less than a month, which made my Paint sweat. I found hock shields by accident. I am so glad I did! They stay on and wash well. Thanks you so much! Very reasonably priced and solves the hock sore issues.Written by Teri, Sottsdale, AZ on Mon 11 Jun 2012 1:49:54 PM GMT
hock shield protective bootRecieved this lovely item after failing miserably to protect my thoroughbred's hocks with my own padding, duct tape and wraps. He spends 3 seasons outside 24/7 with a soft surface run in shelter and never gets abrasions until the winter. He comes in for approximately 12 hours (Michigan winter) and despite his 5 inch sawdust bedding he begins to lose hock hair. This product is durable, easy to apply and remove and stays in place all night long. One of the best purchases I've made. They do not spin around and my horse had no reaction to applying it, removing it or walking in it. I also longed him in them after I purchased them to see if they irritated him or became displaced. These are a winner.Written by sandra gariglio on Wed 22 Feb 2012 1:48:43 PM GMT
