    Hoof Trimming Question

    Okay, all you barefooters I need advice please.

    Firstly, let me say, I am no barefoot guru. I attended one weekend about 5 years ago. I took away the concave sole, shape and balance stuff (not that I'm good at it but getting better I think).

    What I have a real problem with is - How do you get that rim around the outside?

    I always seem to end up with it level with the sole where they meet.

    Some things can not be easily taught via a weekend course, some books and a few paragraphs on an internet BB. Please find a local farrier/trimmer/barefoot person that can come over and show you with your horse.

    Your horse will thank you.

    Put the hoof on a stand or on your knee/thigh. Angle the rasp so that you get a bevel and rasp from top down. DO NOT take off wall flat on the wall plane. Just the bottom 1/4" maybe. Bevel should go to the inner wall. Clear as mud?
