Why We Love This

The Ice Horse Big Black Boot takes the hassle out of cooling a horse's hoof! The unique tri-fold design wraps the horse’s foot in ice from the Coronary Band to the toe, providing cold compression therapy for the treatment of laminitis and relief for stressed hooves or sore feet with no watery mess. Ice packs Velcro® directly onto boot—no more fiddling around with pockets.

    Ice Horse Big Black Boot is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good for icing hoof This boot is good to ice the hoof wall. It is large however so can be cumbersome to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIFE SAVER! I've used these boots religiously twice per day for the past 4 months and they have been a life saver!! After getting special shoes & pads on to help with laminitis, I was no longer able to use ice water to treat my horse's feet (as he couldn't get his feet wet anymore). I gave the big black boots a try and they have worked like a charm. Easy to use and EXTREMELY durable (already used over 240 times and are still going strong..). I've had to replace the ice packs a number of times already, but that's to be expected with so much use (and is still probably cheaper than buying bags of ice every day). I would highly recommend these to anyone who has a horse with sore feet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this a few weeks ago and love it. Fits great and easy to put on.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing The boot is very awkward to put on the hoof when all the ice inserts are used. They are too big and balky to keep the boot closed around the hoof. My mare kept stepping out of it just standing in her stall. I felt it was not very functional and wondered if it would be as effective as advertised. Ordered two. Sent the other one back

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from If it's not broken, PLEASE don't try to fix it! I love my original pair of Big Black Boots. I don't remember when I bought them, but it's been years. The original design would certainly receive a 5 star rating from me, they are durable, effective and easy to use. Recently I received a second pair for use in an acute laminitic episode, during which I would be icing hooves multiple times daily. The new pair arrived with several differences from my original pair. While the high quality construction remains the same, changes include: 1. The external plastic cross piece on the bottom exterior which gave a bit of support to the sole and frog has been removed leaving the hard plastic external support only on the edges. This seems to leave a laminitic horse's hoof supported only by the hoof wall, which might encourage more shearing and separation - the things you are icing the hoof to prevent! A horse or pony with hooves smaller than the external support frame would have no support at all. 2. The new design added 3 sewn in ice bag envelopes, in order to provide 360 degree cooling - the idea to surround the entire hoof with ice is a sound one, but these bags are just a little too small for the firstice cooler bags (odd, since the same company provides both the firstice and the boots). 3. The abundance of hook & loop sticky tabs on the sewn in envelopes is a problem. Probably intended as a way to attach the envelopes to one another in order to hug the hoof with ice (good idea!), the strap tabs are "hook" and the entire boot surface acts as "loop". One can create quite a tangle with these, losing ice time for the horse and adding frustration for the human. 4. The boot now opens much more completely, making it even easier to place the hoof into it quickly. This is an important feature when your horse is uncomfortable on his hooves. note = the old design opens almost as wide and goes on very quickly as well. 5. The new design boot is made of lighter weight material, which means it dries out more quickly between uses. I have taken these boots apart in order to use them. I detached the sewn in "too small" ice envelopes, easing insertion of the firstice into the envelope & allowing placement of the cooling agent freely inside the boot capsule (I plan to make replacement pockets - slightly larger). I added a pad to the bottom for support of the sole & frog. I removed all the excess hook & loop closure tabs, letting the pressure of the closed external boot capsule hold the cooling agent against the hoof. With these changes I was able to use them, alternating with my original pair for my multiple icing periods each day for several weeks BUT in my opinion they are not as good a boot as the original design. I suspect - and hope - they are a step in the Big Black Boot design progression from Very Good to Even Better. An awkward growth phase, if you will.....a "growing pain". My advice if you are considering purchase of this product = see if you can find a used pair of the original design, be prepared to re-make boots of the new design, or wait to see what the next version is.
