The directions said to start with just one sock, to make sure the horse doesn't have any major concerns about wearing what appears to be a gym class tube sock.

I'm glad I did follow the directions, because, while Hudson and Starlight were not at all concerned, being regular hoof-boot wearers, DeCato was quite nonplussed to find something on her leg. It took some reassurance from me before she decided I really did intend to put that there.
The socks are designed to keep biting flies off the horses' legs, and they supposedly do not fall down. In the morning, I'll see if that's true.
