I have the Diamond rasp from my local farm store in the farrier section.
Who's going to say anything about you trimming your own horse's feet? Tattle tails.

The best thing you can do to keep any rasp sharp and last a long time is clean it, spray it with WD-40, and store it where it won't get nicked up.

Just a tip. I started standing my rasp on end in one of those stackable potato chip containers in my "trimming" bucket. I have nicked my self on it several times whilst searching around for stuff. My current one is a bellota, I find it much sharper than the diamond ones. Niether brand is expensive.

Oh, I love bellotas. Nice and sharp, so you gotta be careful to not take too much off.

Yep! I have a piece of pvc pipe I slide mine in to protect both rasp and my knuckles.

I thought it's not illegal to rasp or trim your own horses feet. And it's only illegal if you're doing it to prepare for shoeing?? (uk)
