Tip 1 – Use turnout boots and stable wraps to prevent mud fever rather than washing your horse’s legs every day (Thanks to Nicola Lambert for this tip).
This tip is especially relevant for horses with white legs! Here's a couple of our favouirte boots that could help you this winter:
The Woof Wear Mud Fever Boots feature a submarine hoof capsule that reaches below the bulbs of the heel, and also has a snug fitting cuff to prevent mud ingress. Made from a loose fitting breathable fabric, these boots help to create a cool & dry micro-climate to prevent bacterial growth. These boots are also machine washable, and made from a quick drying material which is perfect for washing overnight and having them ready again by the morning.
The Le Mieux Stable Boots feature a soft removable liner with a flannel inner to help wick away water, so ideal for drying wet legs. The breathable Airprene fabric and wide micro-suede straps make these boot wraps indispensable.
