Whinny Wellies® Defeat Mud, Rain, and Snow
The bad weather barrier against snow, mud, and rain that owners/handlers have been asking for in horse leg protection is here. Whinny Wellies®, are patent-pending equine foul weather leg gear created to protect Silver Whinnys® and Whinny Warmers®, standing wraps, polo wraps, and bandages. With the lined Whinny Wellies, by Sox For Horses!, equine that live outside in the worst weather get the full value of warmth to increase circulation and protective waterproof leg gear all in one leg garment. Horses don’t live in stalls most of the time. Sox For Horses, Inc. rises to the challenge presented by mud, snow and rain to help owners/handlers obtain optimum waterproof leg protection during the wet, cold months of the year.

Circulation-impaired horses suffering from Cushings, Equine Metabolic syndrome, laminitis, founder, and arthritis can benefit enormously from the warmth and increased circulation offered by our lined Whinny Wellies. Horses already wearing the Whinny Warmers® can add the unlined Whinny Wellies over the Whinney Warnmer socks while the horse is outside. As our Whinny Wellies are custom made, we can also make them to fit your cold weather laminitic prone horse that is wearing trail/hoof boots to keep its feet off the hard winter ground.

The Whinny Warmers, and Whinny Wellies can change the very quality of life in the winter for many older or compromised equines.

Horses in bandaging and standing wraps may be restricted to stall rest in the beginning, but there is a point in healing when a supervised slow gentle walk outside can help a horse. Bandaging is expensive, so keeping bandages clean and dry often inhibits an owner from taking the horse outside for a short supervised walk. Not anymore. Whinny Wellies® offer another model constructed to fit bandages, polo wraps, and standing wraps*.

Whinny Wellies® are made of a three-part system of densely woven fabric, micro-porous polyurethane coating, and a water repellent finish. This fabric is waterproof, windproof, durable, and high performance. The best quality high-tension snap closures and heavy-duty hook & loop fastenings are utilized to bring to our customers a product that is well-constructed and equine tough.

The best garment must also vent. Because of the added stay-closed high-tension snaps, small finger holes can be left in the hook & loop that will allow heated air to escape creating a technically proficient and functional rough weather leg gear.

Whether you are using Silver Whinnys®, Whinny Warmers®, standing wraps, polo wraps, or bandaging an injury, Whinny Wellies give three-season (Fall, Winter, Spring) bandage protection and can make the caretaking life of the owner/handlers much easier.

Whinny Wellies offer protection from the bottom of the knee or hock down to the ground. The Wellies are easy to maintain. Hose off the unlined Whinny Wellies and hang them to dry. If you scrub them with a brush, be sure to renew the waterproofing more often. You can machine wash if you use a waterproof protecting detergent.Using TechWash when hand washing is a great idea too. NEVER PUT THEM IN A DRYER. Always wash in cold water. Hanging to dry is best. Lined Whinny Wellies should can be hung to dry in a warm room near the fireplace, woodstove, or over a warm air duct. The “stays” will bend by drying them in a warm or hot dryer. If you must use a dryer, choose the cool setting. The best detergent is “Tech Wash®” by Nikwax. Every two weeks of constant wear and washing, spray them with TX Direct®” by Nikwax so that the waterproofing in the fabric stays strong Go to NikWax.com for these products.
They're simple to put on and take off. The snaps guide the hook and loop into place in seconds, not minutes.
