OK, you guys are going to think I’m obsessed with my Equine Slippers. I’m not.
But, since I use Equine Slippers daily while MT is healing, I like to pass on my “Aha” moments to others in case they are also using Equine Slippers daily.
WHILE WAITING FOR MY REPLACEMENT SLIPPER…
I have several Equine Slippers in all kinds of states of disrepair sitting on my “boot” shelf in the feed room.
And then I had an ‘Aha’ moment…
I wondered if I could simply remove the flapping, almost totally detached leather sole and put it on the inside of the cordura slipper. If I could do that, then I would be able to use the Slipper for a few more days while I waited for the UPS man to arrive.
I took my manicure scissors (amazing what household tools we are willing to use for our horses, eh?) and cut the remaining threads to remove the perfectly good leather sole from the cordura slipper.
I then put the sole inside the slipper, to see if it would still fit. It did!
WASH AND FLUFF!
Yay! So, I then turned the Equine Slipper Cordura boot inside out and threw it in the washer. I figured I wanted the inside cleaned well.
I then took the clean cordura slipper and inserted the leather sole, in the same orientation. This way, it fit and the dirty side was still down.
I then added sheet cotton for cushion and Gold Bond powder because it reduces the moisture in the boot.
It isn’t perfect, but I had it on her hoof for the last three days and she just today wore a little hole in the cordura.
The good news is that the UPS guy just drove away and I now have a new Equine Slipper.
So, for me, a good day!
