Wrists all right for hoof trims

TAKE the pain out of hoof trimming by wearing neoprene wrist protectors that help prevent cutting and chafing of wrists and arms from Linnodee Animal Care.

Dairy and beef producers, vets and hoof trimmers who work with large animals should find neoprene more comfortable than traditional leather wrist protectors. Neoprene is both waterproof and breathable, says Linnodee.

The wrist protectors come in two sizes, medium and large and can be washed without harming the material.

They are available direct from Linnodee Animal Care and cost £11.99 a pair for a limited period (01960-322114, fax 01960-354885).
