Does anyone here use a nicholson platers hoof rasp, or know if they are a good buy? I'm looking into getting a rasp, what would you recommend being a good one? I've heard Bellota rasps are good, but other then that I'm pretty clueless
Never used one but Nicholson is a respected name. The one I'm using now is a Heller. I think the one I had before was a Mustad. It is definitely worth spending the extra money on a good one. Makes the job so much easier.
I use bellota. I only trim my two horses. I guess it is easier for someone that trims a large number to determine quality - but for me bellota seem to come sharp and stay that was for a good long time.
