Walking a Mile in Your Goat’s Hoof Shoes

Sometimes as goat caretakers, we may find it difficult to really understand what a goat is going through whether it’s birth, weaning, milking, or other caprine activities.

Well, here’s our chance* to walk a mile in our goats’ shoes.

Classic black hoof boot

Perhaps, though, you were thinking a bit more . . . rustic?

Zip up front hoof boots

Why yes those are gun goat hoof shoes

And for those times when you’re just relaxing around the pen:

What do you think your kids (human or caprine) would say if they saw you in any of these?

    Hysterical!!!! I am a shoe … let’s say lover! But I must say, these don’t make my list. However, we might see the gold gun boots on Lady GaGa!
    Please do NOT show these photos to the goats! LOL!

    Hahaha I wouldn’t want to scare the poor things! Regarding Lady Gaga, though, this pair almost made the list….

    Somehow I don’t think those hooves will help us people climb rocks and stumps like the goats! When my son was younger he would have insisted I buy a pair,lol!

    Haha true, proof that it’s not about the hooves regarding mountain climbing, etc.!

    I love love love the slippers!!! They remind me of my Vibram “Five Finger” shoes. The rest….ummm…not so much. I even have a sock pattern that would work for those slippers!

    OK I must know more of this pattern…I mean I won’t make them b/c I can’t, but I’d love to see them! I rather do enjoy the slippers myself 🙂

    Okay, the first three are ridiculous, particularly the ones with the gun heels because … what? But the hoof slippers are okay; they’re pretty much the same as Japanese tabi — socks that you can wear with geta. I would find those useful around the house when I put on flip flops to step outside for a minute. Or when I have to go out and clear the yard by eating all the overgrown bushes.

    I actually read your first sentences together a bit as “What the hoof?” which also works here…I like the slippers too 🙂

    They are called “Tabi” socks. Here is a link for some!

    Wikipedia can tell you the traditions of tabi socks, which are still widely worn in Japan and gaining popularity with people who like to wear flip-flops or sandals all winter.

    If you do a search on tabi sock patterns, you will find many!

    Thanks Claire! Flurrious mentioned these above as well. They *do* look comfy! 😀

    are any of those hooves boots for sale? I’m interested in the pair with zippers and the ones with guns. If they’re not your work can you link me to the creator? I need atleast two pairs of (preferably)front, (preferably)goat hooves, do you have any? or any ideas on how to aqquire them? You seem to be way in to goats, so maybe you are the (only)one who can help me:) Hope to hear from you:) 🙂 🙂
