In metric units.
Apparently I have completely forgotten how to, or never knew in the first place, read an english ruler. Metric is 1000 times easier.
I had asked Dusty to bring me a tape measure and asked that it had metric units knowing that the boots and shoes I was looking at either take both or just metric. Apparently we don't have a metric one at home, so he brought what he could.
I grabbed the following pictures to send to whatever company I decide on as well as post here. She was trimmed on Monday of last week and these were taken Sunday, so nearly a week out. I am really pleased with them.
I grabbed some shots of her soles as well:
Overall though I am really happy with they way they are looking right now. I have taken all of your suggestions and will be trimming them myself for now. I will probably have a farrier come look at my handy work in the near future to make sure I am on the right track. I will get a rasp and do a little every week or so to maintain. I know I am not an expert, but I know her hooves like my own feet and have enough research base to at least hopefully not make her lame.
I'm nervous and excited!!
I grabbed the measurements, but seriously I really stink at reading the ruler and had to take a lot of time figuring out the 1/8" and lower marks. I plan on snagging one of my rulers from work and redoing it in metric before ordering anything.
Here is what I got:
Apparently I didn't save the memo on my phone so it is all lost :( Well, I said I wanted to do it again anyway, didn't I?
From what I recall of my quick reference to Easycare she would be in either 0 or 00 for epics, but gloves were in metric only so I couldn't look those up. Guess I will just have to go back out and try again. Sigh.
At the moment I am leaning towards trying the Epics out. I know the cables can really stink but they seem to provide the most flexibility in fit while still staying on. Maybe I am just wishful thinking. I would love boots to work though because after watching all the Epona and Easycare videos on gluing shoes it is a royal PITA and I doubt whether I have the patience to go through the 100 steps it takes to get them on.
I also remembered to grab my Fusion boots to get cleaned up and put online for sale. Hopefully someone wants them as they really are a good boot. If they made their new slim version in her size I would gladly use them as she moved out super well even on gravel and they stayed on through mud, creeks, clay, roots, logs, jumps and at every gait (minus gallop). They did cause rubs though and so they are going up for sale with only 22 miles on them and little to no wear. Someone buy them, please!!!
