    No way! The rasp I bought on sale was from Chick's. I junked that thing so fast, didn't even get a single bit of use out of it. I personally use Bellota top sharp, Heller red tang, or Heller Black Legend. The Black Legend is more suitable to softer feet, fyi. I used it for the first time on a mare that had rock hard feet a couple days ago and had to use the coarse side pretty much the entire time and even then it was like I was using the fine side of a Bellotta rasp on my yearling, who has softer feet. I've yet to use the Red tang rasp, but I can tell it's great quality and will be better for harder hooves. The Bellotta rasp does well for both hard and softer hooves.

    Rasps are very sharp! Cheap rasps usually are more bulky and difficult to wield. If you're going to do this invest some time in watching some hoof balance videos please.. You'd be surprised how much damage a little rasping can do if you don't have a practiced eye for it. Besides that.. Get a belotta classic an an equithotics handle for it. Much easier to rasp with.
