    My sister got her Easy Boots and she said they fit Jackie just right. Jackie has a nice, round hoof. Dapper Dan is more oval. He wears a 3 on the front and 2 on the back.
    I'm very happy with them for the kind of driving we do.

    Mindy, would the Fusions work better for us on our gravel roads? The Easy Boots do get fine gravel in them. If we were to drive more than our 2ish miles, I'd want to stop and check them for debris.

    A quick update on the boots. The Easy Boots rubbed Cappy and made him very sore (pressure area sore and some lameness wearing boots) but they DID fit Peanut who is comfortable in them.
    Cappy is back to the Cavallos and is happy with that.
    Thanks everyone for all the advice!

    Since Dapper Dan has been wearing his boots, the walls on his back feet are a normal width now and no toe wear! The farrier and I are marveling. It is a pain to put them on every time we go for a walk, but worth it.
