UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE J OSEBH FENNELL, OF OYNTHIANA, KENTUCKY.
IMPROVEMENT m HORSE-BOOTS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 175,062, dated March 21, 1876; application filed October 29, 1875.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JosEPE FENNELL, of (Jynthiana, in the county of Harrison and State of Kentucky, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Boot for Horses, of which the following is a specification:
Figure 1 shows my improved boot as applied to a horses leg. Fig. 2 is a rear or inner view of the same.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
The object of this invention is to furnish an improved boot to protect the hoof, pasternjoint, and fetlock joint from being cut or injured .by the overreaching or interfering of the horse when being driven at high speed, which shall be so constructed as not to chafe or stiffen the joints or confine or cord the leg, and which will allow sand to pass out readily.
The invention consists in an improved boot for horses, formed of the lower part or hoofboot, made with a padded upward extension,
and provided with a strap and rubber tube to buckle around the heel of the hoof, and the padded upper part, or speedy-cut boot, connected with the lower part by flexible straps made flaring upward and downward, and provided with a padded strap to buckle around the fetlock, as hereinafter fully described.
A is the lower or hoof boot, which is so formed as to cover the hoof, to which it is secured by a strap, B, buckled tightly around the heel of the hoof just above the shoe. Upon the strap B is placed a rubber tube, 0, four inches, more or less, in length, which prevents the strap B from slipping. The forward part a of the boot A is extended upward to cover and protect the corona of the hoof and the pastern-joint, which extension or is padded to prevent it from chafing the said joint.
D is the upper or speedy-cut boot, the lower edge of which is concaved to correspond with the extension at of the hoof-boot A, and is connected with the upper edge of said boot A by two or more flexible straps, E, so that the boot may not interfere with the proper play of the joints. The boot D is secured in place by a small strap, F, buckled around the fetlock, and which is only designed to keep the boot E from falling down. The strap F is padded, and is buckled loosely, so that it cannot chafe or cord the leg. The boot E is padded upon the inner side, and is made flaring both upward and downward, so that it cannot confine the sand, but will allow it to pass out freely.
A boot thus constructed will be a sure protection against injury from everreaching and interfering, will be held securely in place, and cannot chafe, cord or stiffen the horse, and cannot interfere with the free play of the joints.
Having thus described my invention, Iclaim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patcut- An improved boot for horses, formed of the lower part or hoof-boot A, made with a padded upward extension, at], and provided with a strap and rubber tube, B O, to buckle around the heel of the hoof, and the padded upper part or speedy-cut boot D, connected withthe part A by flexible straps E, made flaring upward and downward, and provided with a padded strap, F, to buckle around the fetlock, substantially as herein shown and described.
