    Where can I buy sheets of High Density EVA foam?

    Hey team, I was sorting out a couple of the girls that had sore feet this morning. I'm a big fan of "blocking" feet, which is where we glue a high density EVA pad to the side of the hoof that isn't sore to take the weight of the side that is sore, which we may have cut etc to treat a lesion or infection. The bloody things are expensive as for a simple block of High Density EVA that's just superglued on, so it got me thinking surely I can just buy sheets of the stuff and cut my own ones? Trouble is where would I find it? Google hasn't helped me much.
    Picture so you get the idea..

    I've seen it at Para Rubber and also the EcoDepot down Blenheim Rd.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Needs to be about 3/4" thick, its quite high density, has to stand up to the weight of a cow!
