Fluffy Stuff

I like the Premier Equine saddle pad so much (and Eli seems to, too) …

The saddle pad is really plush. But. Um. How do I wash it? It’s “fully machine washable” but I can’t imagine fitting this thing in a washing machine.

… that I picked up some fluffy open front boots that were also on sale.

His legs have been getting a bit more beat up than usual in turnout (I presume he is not doing this in his stall). I got concerned about his regular open front boots, that they would cause rubs on areas with tiny scrapes. Polo wraps worked in a pinch, but that’s not quite the level of protection I like for Eli since I know he interferes periodically, sometimes badly.

Can you see the scuffs already? From a grand total of two rides?

Fluffy open fronts to the rescue!

I think he likes them?

Eli is trying to figure out if they taste good.

They run a tad large, but Eli has long legs so they still fit well enough. The “Techno Wool,” as it it called on the Premier Equine website, really is luxuriously soft. I don’t think it’s actual wool, though, as the boots are described as machine washable. The boots have also shed a few small tufts of Techno Wool, but I am hoping that over time this stops, and that it’s just incidental to the boots being new. Otherwise eventually the lining will lose it’s fluffiness, negating its purpose.

No less than four kinds of fluff: synthetic fleece girth, Merino wool saddle pad, “Techno Wool” open front boots, and real sheepskin hind fetlock boots.

For the price, these boots seems to be worth it so far.
