Smooth nylon lining eliminates the potential for damaging the tissue from exposing the skin directly to ice; while also preventing dirt, shavings and debris from sticking to the boots. Extended hook and loop straps allow easy application for all horses. Packaged in a convenient set of two these boots also come with a mesh carrying bag. To activate, place in freezer until frozen, can be then transferred to ice chest or cooler for use away from the barn or a freezer.
