Turnout Boots for Mud Fever Prevention: With mud fever, prevention is better than cure. Equi-Chaps Close Contact Chaps, do exactly what they say – they fit close, like a second skin to keep legs protected from the damaging effects of mud. Unlike other turnout boots, Equi-Chaps Close Contact Chaps completely encase the lower leg, covering the hoof, heel and fetlock area. Equi-Chaps Close Contact Chaps offer mild protection from brushing and overreach injuries so eliminate the need for a brushing boot and an overreach boot when turning out. They are very easy to clean and dry quickly and the touch and close straps make them secure even around the fetlock area. With handy grip tabs for easy removal. They come in an array of sizes to suit the smallest of ponies and largest of horses with additional features like the hook receptive fetlock area to allow for greater adjustability. Please note however, they are not suitable for horses or ponies with a neoprene allergy. It is important that the close contact chaps fit the horse snugly so that mud doesn’t rise under the boots and cause irritation which could lead to mud fever. They can be worn for up to 12 hours with minimum risk of rubbing as they are so flexible, soft and breathable.
