Shoes to big for swollen aged hoof?
The age thing has you confused?
Rubber doesn’t stretch (or shrink) with that method, only the leather so be careful of creating unusual fit because rand not changing.

Leave em on till they dry. A hairdryer helps.
Oh, An the dye will pigment your hoof nicely.

You in Singapore yeh? Hoof prolly swollen due heat? Returning to cold Vic will cause your hoofs to shrink again?
Not to worry. Singapore is cheap shops an even Amelda Marcos shopped there.

All else fails barter them with mig75 who its rumoured collect such things.
