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 u 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 u know how on the top of the hoof where it grows how it gets that funky peeling part, well thats 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
