Sure, I've used hoof picks for my boots.
Also, I use them for when the tack is sticky (in bridles, mainly) and I pull it out. If that makes sense!

I use my hoof picks when Im doing Nudgie's excersices, to scratch down each side of his rump to get him to relax his back muscles.

Ive opened paint tins and also hoof black with picks lol umm Im sure Ive used them for other things as well, cant remember right now.

We have a hoof-pick slot on the back door because we have four dogs and we always step in something out there.

Hoof picks work for more than just mud.

I just use them for picking hooves :) But has anyone seen those magnetic hoof picks? My sister in law gave us one and its pretty cool. It will stick to anything metal (except an aluminum trailer :( )
I also bought the most expencive hoof pick ever $10 at our horse expo. its this ergonomic thing that really is a great pick. I think its some local guy making them. Its become my all time favorite hoof pick.

I really think some hoof picks like these kind:

are made from flat head screw drivers. They're useful for changing out bits and things that need bolts.
