    Hi can you confirm that the magnetic hock boots can be left on at night in the stable and is safe to lie down whilst wearing them? He comes in at 3/4pm and goes out at 8/9am, will they be suitable? Thanks

      Hi Mhairi,

      The magnetic hock boots can be left on and they are safe to use overnight.

      We recommend using them for about 12 hours. As long as your horse is not wearing them for prolonged periods ie. 24/7 then this will be fine.

      If you need any further help, just let me know.

      Best wishes,
      Sam
