Hi Deborah,

The idea is to keep in warmth so boots that cover the lower leg, and even the hoof, are what's needed. For the feet themselves you could use socks inside of padded boots. Lined shipping boots are a relatively simple solution.

How much warmth will depend on what the temps are doing in your area and how sensitive your horse is to the drop in temps. Need to start wrapping/blanketing once the temps drop into the forties as that is when the cold-induced issues start.
