Have you heard of the TUBBEASE hoof sock? Me, neither. HOWEVER, It seems like a nice substitution for the Davis Boot and Equine Slipper. I wish these had been around with Mama Tess. (No affiliation)

I friend of mine on FB showed me this pic:

This pic is difficult to see, but it is a hoof sock with a hard, plastic sole.


These equine hard socks are called, Tubbease.

Not just in Australia, NZ and the UK!  We can now get them in the USA!  I checked on Amazon, State Line Tack and Jeffers.

Now, I have not used these… but my friend says it was incredibly easy and a great way to soak, add poultice, wrap and protect a tender hoof.

I would have LOVED to try this with Mama Tess!

I use a Davis Boot for soaking, but those have lots of excess room… whereas this is snug.

I used an Equine Slipper with my wrapped hoof… but this looks more snug.  I feel like I could add a poultice or pad into this boot and feel confident that it would stay on.

And, they are inexpensive!.

Right now, no one as any foot issues here (Thank horsegods), but I will remember these for the next time.  I think this seems much less messier/safer than the Davis boot… and more solid than the Equine Slipper.  I think this would give me coverage and security for soaking and wrapping a hoof.

I like it!  PLEASE email me if you have used it!  I’d like to hear.
