My 1/2 arab's front hooves were pretty torn up early this summer, from her stomping. Since using the leggings hooves are not damaged! Very happy. Size guidelines were right on. I have only put them on her front legs; flies seem to annoy her minimally in back.
Work as described. Horses accept very well. Size seems accurate. I believe I could have gotten the large for our larger quarter horses (almost 16 hands & big-boned) but bought the medium size as other reviewers said they run large, and these do fit on the larger animals as well as on my finer boned foxtrotters. Need to remove & clean after horse gets into mud. Easy to clean up w/ garden hose & small brush. Good product.
I was hesitant to order these. Other people swore by them but I didn't understand fully so I decided to order a set. My horse stomps 10 times less than she used to! These work like a charm! No more bugs on her legs that cause her to stomp. Great product, they stay on like they should, and are quality built! Love them! I will definitely recommend these to everyone.
These did fit very well on my large, stout, quarter horse gelding, but the smaller horse needs to have the Velcro fit a little bit tighter on his front legs. So, I only put them on his back legs where he had been kicking and had scratched himself. I would suggest though that they be removed frequently and cleaned. Since the tops are open much wider than the horses legs, their droppings can fall inside the legging. After the rain, they were pretty muddy, too. Otherwise, I think they worked well to keep the flies off their legs and reduce stress and frustration for my horses.
I got these for my 3 year old paint because she kept ripping off her traditional Velcro strap fly boots. I bought her a set of these and I have not had the problem since! Very minimal stomping. I have not had one come off yet. Trustworthy enough to leave on overnight. I have not seen flies go down into them. If you have a trouble maker that likes to rip boots off, I don't think that you will have a problem with these. I do believe that they run a little big. I bought a set of mediums and my horse is about 15.2. They work just fine, but are sort of big. One of my friends was concerned that a horse could get poop into them....Lol I have yet to have that problem. I love these fly boots, and highly recommend them. They are worth the money!
The horses love these! They really do eliminate some fly stomping. Only downfall so far is the Velcro one of the boots has ripped after the second day.
Seem to Good!
My farrier suggested I get these. He raves about them. So far, so good. One fell off, but I suspect that's human error. My horse is a 15.2 hand quarter horse and they seem a bit big, but maybe the tops are supposed to far away from the leg.
Hind should be smaller
So far I like the leggings but find that my 15.2 paint should probably have a small size rather than Med. the hind ones are large and tend to drop down and get stepped on and dirty
Stay on great & dramatically reduced my mares stomping. I would beware of sizes def. Measure first. My mares 14.3 1100 and petite hooves and small is on bigger size for her.
They hold up great and keep flies away...no stomping!
I'm beyond impressed with these leggings. I searched long and hard for something to combat flies. Eveyrthing else I found said you had to check on your horse twice a day, and you couldn't leave them on overnight (what's the point in that??). I felt like I was at a loss for what to do...that is, until a friend told me about these leggings. I've had them for about a week now, and my horse LOVES them!! One fell off the first night, but I readjusted and now they've stayed nice and secure ever since. No rubbing either! It's amazing to me that flies don't fly down into them, but I promise you they don't somehow. (I watched closely!). I've been recommending these to all of the folks in my barn. You won't regret it! :)
I love these. The horses got them off the first day or two but then adjusted and haven't removed since. I believe they are more comfortable than traditional ones. I particularly like that they are not tight....air can flow which I think is better for the horse's legs. I wondered if flies would fly down into them, but have not seen that happen. However, with the traditional set, flies would bite through them as they were right against the horse's leg. I have one old mare who has to have fly boots or she would go septic from fly bites on hind legs. I have another who had to have farrier come back for shoes coming off when didn't use fly boots.....now no problem. I also have a horse who did not wear fly boots because she was fussy with things on her legs. She ended up having abscess. However, when she wears them (which she tolerates with this product), she has no abscesses. Thanks for a very good product!!
So Glad I purchased them
Needs more Velcro on the bottom
Like them a lot otherwise
Best fly boots ever
I have tried many other types of fly boots but these are by far the best on the market. They stay in place and keep my horses happy.
These leggings are amazing! Both of mine wear them daily in very large pasture with wooded/thorny vine areas. Each horse lost one front first day (thinking I didn't get them on tight enough) but since then, they've kept them on & have had no issues; bright color made finding them easy too. I must say that both kicked out & walked funny for first few minutes but now they ignore them & stand very quietly to get them on. Being able to look out window any time of day and see my horses grazing or resting completely comfortably is very important to me. These leggings work! Worth every cent not to mention the savings on fly spray. They run large, probably order smaller than you think you need. I would have exchanged mine BUT I DIDNT WANT TO BE WITHOUT THEM ANOTHER MINUTE!
LOVE LOVE LOVE these boots!Stay up, easy to clean and last a long time.
Sizing is wrong
The sizing on these are incorrect. We have horses that are over 15'3 and the large was too big. Good product once you get the right size.
I bought 3pairs for 2 horses and a pony. The large was great for my TB. But a little large for my 15.1 crossbreed mare. Small fit my 14 hand pony.
Great for flies Velcro not so great
I love these boots for flies. They don't scrunch and run on their legs. I have had them on three days while outside. On the second day one of the top Velcro pieces tore in half. Still functional, just not as handy.
These are the best fly boots!! They last for years!!
My mare hated these. She kept kicking out no matter how losely or tightly I put these on. Waste of money.
These are great for the horses. I used to go outside and see the horses always stomping their feet, but once I bout the shoofly leggins they stopped stomping.
LOVE these Leggins!
I've tried other fly boots and end up very disappointed. These are wonderful! They keep the flies away, stay up and wash great. I won't buy any other . . . So glad you carry them! Thank You!
Excellent product, little expensive but offset by saving the hoof and joints from stomping.
Other than the felt at the bottom keeping burrs these do a wonderful job. They stay up, no rubbing and don't fall off. They have saved us from hoof cracks and quarter breaks this year. The felt holding burrs is our only issue. I have to switch out with another brand when the burrs get bad but other than that, they work great!!
Best boots ever! I will never buy any other ones!
Keeps the flies off but everything sticks to velcro
These fly leggins work amazing to keep flies off, they stay up, on and are well made. the only major problem I have with them is all the grass seed heads get stuck on the velcro and bottom part and it's AWFUL hard to get it off, after a while, they're just packed with it and it takes hours to get them out just to have them get stuck on there all over again.
Does Its Job!
I refrain from spraying chemicals on my horses (and myself, for that matter) so I'm always looking for other ways to protect them like fly predators and fly traps. The flies love my little bay Arabian gelding, Buddy. He'll have 50 flies on his legs and the horse standing next to him only have a few. At home the predators and traps do the trick. However, at competitive trail ride competitions, no such protection is around. So I tried these leggings. Wow! They worked! Buddy's legs were fly free and he could relax and be comfortable while in camp. I recommend them to everyone! They don't rub. Also I align them so that the vertical supports are on either side of each leg, easily keeping them upright without interfering with moving around.
fly boots easy to put on and take off original purchaser was large blue which were too big I have OTTB 16.0 hands but legs are thin and long. purchased another pair in medium much better. these do the job flies don't get down inside -no stomping -----hurray
There really are none better. I'm so glad your back!!!!!!!!!!
These are simply the best fly leggings. They stay up, don't rub and stay on. I have them for my paddock and pasture horses. I highly recommend.
I've recommended this product to all of my friends.
I love these fly leggings. They stay up and don't rub and prevent my horse from stomping her hooves apart.
