Giddyap Girls Soaking Boot
Only if you need to trap the gas
I used this for my horse's foot when soaking the white lightning mixture. I ended up purchasing a correctly fit Davis Medicine boot for regular soaking though.
In order for the white lightning to work with this boot I needed to wrap the top of the boot with vet wrap. My horse is pretty good about standing still but would still break all the plastic bags I put him in.
He is shod, 15.1hh, arab qh mix and this was really big for him but it still worked for my purpose.
If you're just needing a soaking boot I would rec. the davis boot. If you need to use White Lightning and the hoof is resected I would just buy the white lightning gel instead and tape it over.

I love this boot for soaking, the water stays put when the horse picks up her foot--Oh so much better than a bucket!!

While I have not used this boot yet, I purchased it to have on hand. I selected this particular boot because it is the exact one my farrier used to soak with white lightning. The ease and flexibility of using this contributed no stress to the horse or the process. My farrier highly recommended this boot for soaking.

This boot was very helpful in soaking my horses foot. He kept knocking over any other soaking pales or buckets that I tried to use. He was so much better with the boot which didn't make as much of a mess.

I have no idea what animal the people who like this are using it on but they must be considerably larger than a horse. The bottom panel is so big, my horses step on it with their other feet and then panic. The velcro doesn't close tightly at the bottom so the water leaks out. Every time the horse moves, water sloshes everywhere. I used it twice and threw it away. A complete waste of money.

Giddyap Girls soaking boot
This has been the year of hoof ailments in my barn. I thought I did a fairly good job of research in looking for a soaking boot. (I liked this boots verstility in fitting everyone.) When I pulled it out of the packaging I was shocked to see the size of it. I mean the rubber bottom is the size of a dinner plate. I really wasn't trying to fit an elephant here. The velcro straps aren't able to close it enough to hold it on my thoroughbreds leg. So I stood and held the thing for 30 mins. to soak her. Unfortunately when she wants to move well the thing is so big , sloshing soaking liquid everywhere. What a waste of good money.
