We’re using these cloud boots for my 20 y/o gelding who has PPID a and now laminitis. We’re on our second set. I have to say as a 65 y/o woman they’re a little tricky for me to get on by myself, my husband has no problem. We do powder them up with a medicated foot powder to keep them better. We are using Keratex to help toughen his soles so we remove, treat and reapply them everyday. He won’t move without them on. I wish they were a little cheaper but they’re made really well. The Velcro has trouble after a few months. Be careful to get the correct size. In all honestly I don’t know what we would do without them. They’re easy to remove,when he goes into the clinic for hoof X-rays . I’m hoping to get him in a pair if Avanti shoes soon.
We bought these boots for our 20 year old gelding to wear while he was recovering from laminitis. So far the boots have been sturdy and easy to use. They were pricey but if they continue to give him relief then we will be happy.
So far so good with helping my foundered horse. Really hoping they continue to provide relief
These boots saved the day. My mare had a very bad abscess that the vet eventually had to scrape out, including some bone. We decided not to put her shoes back on, and to try these boots. She was immediately much more comfortable and she is finally healing and recovering.
I have tried many boots for laminitis. Soft rides are more durable but big and heavy, also they allow sand and rocks to get it. The clouds seal up better. Just put some foot powder in to prevent it getting gunky. My horse loves her clouds. I do recommend getting some extra pads as they do squish down over time.
