Coming Soon – New Sizes of Cavallo BFB Draft Hoof Boots!

At Cavallo, we’re announcing another new development.  Coming Soon – new Sizes of Cavallo BFB draft Hoof Boots!  Currently in production are two new sizes to accommodate the Big Horse population.  Sizes 7 and 9 will be added to Cavallo’s draft-size range of BFB (Big Foot Boots) and are expected to hit the U.S market in early 2020.

Because Cavallo LOVES a Challenge!

By request, BFB was developed to meet the needs of carriage/driving, working and pleasure drafts, as well as those in need of a boot during periods of hoof rehabilitation.  Producing a hoof boot that could support the weight and activity of animals weighing around a ton was no simple task for us!  Technically advanced materials are selected to withstand intense weight and pressure in repetitive motion and be counted on to provide shock absorption and weight distribution. Even on hard asphalt, gravel or rocky trails, these boots perform!

Offered in sizes 8 and 10, the success of BFB became immediately apparent. As expected, Cavallo was quick to respond and we began developing two more sizes. BFB Poly Pad insoles are now an added option to our product line.  These insoles function to provide even more shock absorption when needed or to tighten boot fit (just like with our human shoes).

Supporting Draft Horses – From the Ground Up

Constructed on soles of a specially formulated thermoplastic urethane (TPU) compound, BFB provides maximum protection, unsurpassed traction, durability, and abrasion resistance.  Uppers made of industrial-grade 1680 Denier Nylon, with secure wrap-around closures, offer quick hoof insertion and full protection.  Viola –  the draft hoof is cushioned and perfectly protected by the BFB during any demanding activities and tough terrain.

BFB BLING – For a Limited Time

As a fancy addition, the BFB Bling is currently available but only offered in North America and for just a limited time.  If your big horse would like to sparkle, get your bling boots quickly!  😉

Cavallo BFB Steals the Show at the Rodeo!

The Cavallo BFB and ELB Bling recently roped in the crowds at the 2019 Calgary Stampede!

Connie Challice is an accomplished barefoot trimmer from Calgary, Alberta.  This July, Connie and her crew had a vital role to play at the Calgary Stampede – to provide a team of horses for the Stampede Parade. They pulled national, provincial, and city politicians as well as esteemed veterans (on their wheelchair-accessible wagon). Connie, herself, drew the RCMP and First Nations dignitaries in their Vis-a-vis carriage.

Connie commented on using BFB’s on their drafts during these events:

“We had a team of Suffolk Punch horses (Jack and Flame) driven at the 2019 Calgary Stampede parade. They are an older team, and Flame has a little arthritis – after pavement work, he sometimes seems sore. Now that we’re using the Cavallo BFB Boots and Pads, he’s able to do many miles and remains comfortable. We all are grateful for this; it makes so much sense to have a comfortable option that helps absorb the shock of the pavement. Luke, our 8-year-old Clydesdale, was wearing Cavallo BFBs under his feathers and they were absolutely amazing for the whole event; he was even comfortable on the crushed road gravel.”
