    In-Between-Trim Touch Ups??

    Would love some farrier responses! I want to start doing some in between trim touch ups with my horses.. they are prone to cracking and I think rounding the hoof a few times between trims will really help keep the hoof in tact and comfortable for them. I want to know if you would recommend a tool like the riders rasp? Or if I should just go ahead and get the usual farrier's rasp. Also any input on how to trim would be good, I'm pretty sure I know what to do, 45 degree angle for about a 1/4 inch or when you start seeing the white line.. Just rounding out the bottom of the hoof. But if you have anything different let me know. Thanks!

    Oh and I do intend on talking to my farrier about this on Wednesday, just wanted to get as much info as I could before then so I don't sound like a total blockhead

    Nope that's about it. Just keep the edges rolled just enough so that the outer hoof wall isn't the first thing that touches the ground. I prefer the smooth side of a regular rasp over the rider's rasp, but both do the trick.

    Ask your farrier, he may have an old rasp you can use
