    In the arab, racking/walking and saddlebred world (pretty sure about morgans, too), people do take fine grit sandpaper to "knock the dust off" before applying polish (with their hands, not with power sander - -at least i've never heard of that). I used to do it with my saddlebred's white hoof to get the red clay stains off of it ;)

    Personally, I don't think it makes the hoof look any better than an unsanded one :)

    In the arab show world you sand the top of their hooves but only before a show, this is to make the polish nice and smooth but we always do like the day before and only when needed like you know how on the top of the hoof where it grows how it gets that funky peeling part, well that's where we sand
    My old barn used a sander on really low power but now that im not there I always do it by hand
