New Fly Boots!
These boots are available for sale currently.
I've decided to start naming my boot sizes after some of the donkeys that I have made custom boots for in the past, these are the 'Paulianne'. Paulianne was a grey overweight donkey resucued by Hithger, in Artois, Ca and later re-homed. Her new home had me make her fly boots.
Each pair of fly boots are handmade, in Montana, by me. Inevitably there will be variations in stitching and may not look perfect. And honestly, I'm a little out of practice, I used to produce boots a few years ago. These boots show just that, some of the stitiching spacing is off (thanks to my binding foot being out of adjustment), none of which affect the function of the boots.
Why did I choose these colors?
I started thinking about how flies see color. They obviously love my Daisy more than Rocky, but why? It's because of her color. I researched this more and found that yellow is the least attractive to flies..."A key to making the device effective was the discovery that flies are three times more attracted to the color blue than to yellow and that yellow actually seemed to repel flies." Why wouldn't I make them yellow? I am hoping to make the binding yellow as well.
These are sized medium, they should fit most large standard donkeys. They are ten inches tall and fabric to fabric are 10" in circumference, but can be easily fastened down to 7", absolute minimum circumference is 4.5". Please measure your animal before ordering.
