Cashel Crusader Leg Guard
Cashel fly boots, the crusader leg guards, are made from strong durable mesh. They are well fitting and will not slip as easily down the leg as many other fly boots do. They are trimmed in nylon to stop grass seeds and prickles from getting underneath and to make them more comfortable.
The mesh in the Cashel Fly Boots allows air to circulate while protecting the area. They are easily adjusted for a perfect fit and come in a set of two. Care is simple by hosing the dirt of them in the wash bay or putting in the washing machine.
Fly boots help to limit stomping. In summer some horses did massive holes, damaging paddocks and stables in their frustration to move the flies of their legs. This stomping also causes wear and tear on tendons and joints and tires the horse. Fly boots can also guard against open wounds getting attacked by biting insects. In summer even small scratches on the lower legs can become a problem if they get fly infested. Some horses also have allergic reactions to biting insects and fly boots can help control this.
It is best to put your horse into fly boots before the flies start to bite the legs so much they draw blood. As there is no flesh on the lower legs, this area is very susceptible to nasty bites. Once blood is drawn it is very difficult to stop biting insects from attacking this area.
