Just wanted to tell you how happy we are with your Hock Shields. Our Warmblood filly is "horse-tall" but still sleeps like she's a foal, on the floor of her stall. We have rubber mats and no matter how much bedding we put in, her hocks developed sores that could not heal as she reopened them every night. We purchased Hock Shields for her and in less than a week, the wounds are dried up and have shrunk to almost nothing. By next week, they should be gone altogether. They stay on and in place all night and are easy to put on and off. I've washed them in cold water, gentle cycle and dried them on low heat. They came out fluffy and clean. Great product! I'm telling all our fellow horse-keepers about them. Thanks!
