Like my post on DIY pony point trainers that look like hooves, this post was inspired by a story I am writing where someone is transformed into a human pony at a barn using only supplies on hand.
Hand hooves are easier than hooves for legs because they don't require the forced flexion of the limb. Nevertheless, I figured I would post a few photos on how to transform hands into hooves with only basic equipment that can be found at your local tack store.
Here are the supplies you'll need for one hand - only a hoof sokaing boot (the Davis boot is the most common one and the one I used here), duct tape, and polos. I used pink polos here because that was part of my story, but you can use any color (or none at all, but polos really add to the security):
Force your pony's hands into a fist:
Tape your pony's hand into place in fists with duct tape:
Insert the duct taped fists into the hoof soaking boot (I used one of my horses' boots here, so it's way too big - a size 2, when I should have used a 00 or 000, but I didn't have one that small at hand):
Secure the strap of the hoof soaking boot and use the velcro to lock it in place. Then wrap the polos, starting at the top of the hoof boot, going up the arm to a bit below the elbow, then back down to the top of the hoof boot and secure it in place:
Your pony now has a hoof for a hand. Repeat this on his other hand, and he'll have two fore-hooves and no use of his fingers or way to free his hands!
