Breeder's Tips

Breeders share their ideas and experiences

Red Boots : Tip from Janine Olson

Every girl loves a pair of red shoes but last year my favorite footwear was a pair of redboots which saved one of my foals.

Many of our friends followed Faiths journey last spring so for now I only want to remind people that if they hear of any foal born with angular limb deformity I am willing to rent out Faiths boots.

These boots came from a company named Redboot; they arrived from Argentina and were developed by an amazing Veterinarian, Agustin Almanza.

Under verterinary care and intensive management these boots were intrumental in helping Faith walk, they supported and aided in the relaxing of her contracted front legs.
