I was recently asked if I had any suggestions for how to tell two pairs of Renegade boots apart when your horse wears the same size and color all around.
Permanent marker isn’t all that permanent and rubs off rather quickly. Ditto trying to get any kind of paint to stick to the boot material.
So my suggestion was to take a colored hair elastic and wrap it around the pastern strap, next to the o-rings.
|Unvelcro the pastern strap entirely and wrap the elastic off
to the side of the o-rings. Orange would have made more of
a statement, but blue was what I had at hand.
It’s bright and colorful, but low-profile, unlike ribbons that might unravel, get tangled, get caught, or otherwise get in the way.
|I found this stuff at a craft store and added it
to my stash of stuff.
Same deal…tear off thin strips and wrap around the same stop on the pastern strap.
|I don’t know if it’ll be as long-wearing as the elastic.
I’ll have to test it.
