(EasyCare) Easycare, Inc., in collaboration with Old Mac's, has released a new and improved "Generation 2" Old Mac Multi-purpose Horse Boot. The G2 boot is a fine-tuned version of its predecessor, re-engineered for a sleeker look, better performance and greater longevity. One of its most positive features is a new tread pattern that provides aggressive traction while eliminating pressure on sensitive internal hoof structures. While traction is extremely important, very aggressive traction can inhibit a horse's natural movements and can increase stress on joints, tendons and upper extremities. The G2 provides cushioning at the sole (the suspension system), while allowing the tread to "take hold" of the road or any other challenging surface.
