2" diameter: solid and vented for hock area of most horses *we find it helpful to cut a small half-moon shaped, dime size opening on the fold of the solid sleeve prior to placing on the leg and use the hole at the calcaneus as an anchoring point. See photo examples below.
*IF YOU FIND YOUR SLEEVE IS NOT STAYING IN PLACE add a small piece of elastic tape at the top or use the EquineSleeve 1"x4" extend/anchor piece (ES104EAS). Stacking always helps!
