I'm also being plagued with "old truck" troubles. LSEGH tries to keep us rolling but the old Sierra has seen better days. Long hauls give me pause. We are hoping to replace it, but truck prices...I could pay off our home for what one used costs. The old one is going into the shop on Friday for repairs, again.
Haven't decided on what hoof protection I'm running this year. I've weighed both manufacturers glue on processes, have a big drawer of Renegades, and another of our old Gloves. Even kicked around shoeing but can't make myself go there yet. Our booting options on both sides of the fence have some bugs. Rear gloves she just bangs herself up something awful. I don't believe that is a product flaw, it is a Journey moves very weird thing. Gloves do sometimes cause rubs on the front where they fasten together as well. Again, not a glove flaw, more likely I'm getting them snugged down a bit too tight in those cases. One I can fix, the other I can't. Our Rennies do not rub, and on my long slow rides they generally (not always) stay put. In competition we've consistently popped out of a hind boot on uphill climbs. There is will sit, all strapped up, just sitting as if it were still buckled onto the hoof, and it truly defies logic! She will be getting a trim tomorrow and we will try on existing boots to determine if I have a satisfactory solution. Really don't need them right now, but will soon enough.
Journey's latest out fit in all its Green Bean glory ☺
