Humphy has just been completely clipped. This is the first time ever that he has had a full clip and I'm not sure if I should put stable boots on him over night. Question

I know it is not necessarily cold at the moment but it will get colder as the month goes on.

If you think I should, then do you have any suggestions as to what I should use. Don't want to use stable bandages in case they come undone during the night.

Any ideas/suggestions Rolling Eyes

Thanks

I wouldnt worry too much at the mo Trace, its not cold enough yet. I used bandages and wraps on chance last year when i took his legs out. I dont like the stable boots as i find they never stay in place and end up round their ankles!!! Neutral

I did say i'd never take his legs out again though, too much hassle!! lol

I wouldn't bother.

I used them on Jimbo occasionally if the weather was particularly cold (snow/freezing cold)
But only because he was a big wimpy thoroughbred type and he was prone to having clicky joints (being so big and the cold made them worse)
But it was extremely rare for me to put them on him because if i did put them on and it wasn't very cold i'd find him sweating in the morning underneath them.

If there rugged up well you find you don't need boots and stuff or bandages.
