Absorbent baby diapers- one with the absorbent side to the hooof and the other diaper with absorbent side to the boot. They get heavy, I change every 12 hours. 
Boot/glove drier - hang the boots on it helps to speed up the drying process.
plastic bread sleeves - put over the socks to keep the wool sock dry- introduce to horse first before placing plastic bag over foot! 
Lots of gold bond powder- the blue container seems to work the best.
Leg gaiters that you would use for snowshoeing or skiing to keep the snow out of the top of the boot...
old ballerina leg warmers they are long, but can double up and add that little extra insulation from the knee to the ankle. 
Hope this helps.
