So what does the Woof Wear Mud Fever Boot consist of?
Submarine Hoof Capsule - Most turnout boots end above the bulbs of the heel allowing mud to easily seep up the leg. The Submarine hoof capsule is articulated and ‘dives deep’ underneath the bulbs of the heel to prevent the boot riding upwards preventing mud ingress.
Breathable Fabric - The loose fitting waterproof and breathable fabric allows air to circulate around the leg creating a micro-climate which prevents the warm, damp conditions mud fever loves.
Open the boot completely
Put it around the leg and do up the top strap securely, ensuring the vertical hook and loop section is located down the front of the leg
Adjust the neoprene around the hoof to ensure the bulbs of the heel are covered. Pull tightly and overlap the hook and loop on the neoprene. When satisfied with the fit, smooth over the top securing straps. Then close the hook and loop strip down the front of the cannon bone
Lastly, adjust the middle strap so that the material is gathered neatly but not tight against the leg. The purpose of this strap is to hold the excess material close to the leg, it is not a support strap for the boot.
NOTE: It is important that the neoprene around the hoof overlaps fully so the hook and loop fixture is locked in place over a large surface area. If this is not the case we recommend going up a size.
Close all straps prior to washing
Machine wash max 30°C in non bio
DO NOT tumble dry
DO NOT leave boots in strong sunlight

3. How does the Submarine Hoof Capsule prevent Mud Ingress?

4. How does the breathable fabric in the MFTB protect my horse?
The loose fitting waterproof and breathable fabric allows air to circulate around the leg creating a micro-climate which prevents the warm, damp conditions that mud fever loves.
5. My horse has mud fever now, will these boots be suitable?
Outdoor Functional Wear recommends that you use the Woof Wear Mud fever turnout boot over the Silver Whinnys to protect them from getting wet.
6. How long can my horse wear them for?
Providing you carry out daily checks the boots can be worn indefinitely. The boots should be removed daily, and legs inspected, make sure all the hook and loop fastenings are clean and free of debris, and if all is well, pop them back on again over your Silver Whinnys or by themselves. If the fastenings are not clean, they will be unable to stick and therefore won’t keep the boot secure.
7. Are they front and hind specific?
These versatile boots are suitable for front or hind legs – check the sizing guide for more information
8. Do my horses legs need to be clean before I put the boots on?
Remove all mud and bedding from your horse’s legs before fitting. The mud fever boot provides a snug fit to keep the mud out so make sure that there is nothing in the way which is likely to irritate your horse’s skin under the boot.
9. Is it ok to put damp boots back on the horse?
Best practice is to fit dry boots only. These quick drying boots mean you can ensure they are dry before putting them back on your horse after washing them.
10. How do I look after my boots?
Clean debris from the hook and loop material, close straps before putting in the machine and wash on a 30 degrees centigrade programme with non-bio powder. Closing the hook and loop straps when not in use will help prevent debris getting caught up in them.
11. Can my horse wear them in the stable?
Yes they are fine for use in the stable.
12. Do they offer any protection from brushing?
There is a degree of protection offered by the strike pad, but if your horse brushes heavily then this boot is not suitable.
13. Do they offer any protection from overreaching?
There is a degree of protection offered by the lower Kevlar section of the boot, but if your horse is a serial overreacher then we suggest you fit an overreach boot over the top of the Mud Fever Boot.
