I have used all of their prodcuts on my gelding with the exception to the "Adhere" liquid shoe. I love their products, long lasting, not expensive, etc. Here is an example of the Sil Pak being used on my gelding. Great product!!

Good luck! The hoofware search seems to be a lot like the great saddle search.... always ongoing!

Wow, thanks for the response!! Have been swamped and haven't had much time to post, but have been thinking shoes. In the winter it's too wet here to do anything but arena ride, so just go barefoot. Figure I'll put shoes on in March. I've got the Eponas (ordered a while back), but still have to find a farrier who will put them on. Mine balks at them. After those I'll have to decide wether to go with something that can be put on and taken off, or something glue on that will hold. Everyone seems pretty certain that Eponas need to be nailed. In our Texas mud (more like gumbo) anything loose will be sucked right off. I really don't want to go the nail on route permintly. My oldest gelding, 28, wears nail on shoes 24/7 as he's gotten tender footed in his old age (cushings). They have really re-shaped his feet and not for the better : (
Has anyone ever had problems with the Easy Boots/Renagades rubbing blisters, especially in sand? I stoped wrapping my horses legs as the sand was causign problems. Thats stuff gets EVERYWHERE.

The equithotics look really interesting. I love that they can be shaped. How long/many miles do they last for you ? A lot of farriers around here balk at anything but steele shoes too. Everytime I start looking hoof/shodding stuff I swear I'll just go to farrier school - just as soon as I get them time. lol.
I LOVE the Equithotics. A lot of farriers balk at them, but fortunately, I can put them on myself. I had trouble with the Eponas. The blue gel thing in the shoe came loose and was a pain. I am a fan of the ShockTamer pads and have had great success using them with the EDSS sole pack. The soles stayed healthy and kept their cup.
