Talking Hoof pick with light!

I just came across this.A hoof pick with a light. Unbelieveable. This is exactly what we all need! It is pretty cool. For $20 bucks, this is TOTALLY worth it! I am going to order one very soon! :)

That would be very helpful!
It is so difficult in bad lighting by yourself to hold a hoof up if you're looking at it, picking it and treating it! Juggling the hoof, the pick, flashlight and ointment! LOL I end up usually holding the flashlight in my mouth!

To me that's just another way to get people's attention to buy ridculous things,lol. I can see it having benefits if you don't have any lights at all but really..who picks their horses's hooves when it's dark out?...not me and a car headlight does the trick if so :P

Uh.... why exactly do I "need" a hoof pick with a light?

I just turn on the barn lights on when it's dark outside.

Eh, I've been in a situation where one of these would've been quite useful. It was 11 at night and there are no lights at my mom's house, not even on the exterior of the house, and I'd just gotten home. I needed to go up and pick out Mudpie's hooves while I was feeding him (I do this every day to avoid any sort of fungus or bruises) and I can say that even a full moon does not provide enough light to see the hoof well. And holding the flashlight between your jaw and shoulder while trying to aim and pick isn't exactly easy. ;)

Not sure how much light this would actually provide, but I like the idea!!

I have lights in my barn. But even when I pick hooves outside it can get hard to see. Unless I was smart enough to bring a hair tie, my hair always blocks the light. I think it is good to have especially in emergency situations. Such as getting stuck on a trail after dark or riding in a heavily treed area.

Who picks their horses hooves when it's dark out?
Ever heard of an emergency? If my horse has a rock in it's shoe or needs ointment i'm not going to wait untill morning because I can't see. And not every barn is properly illuminated, even if it is, there's these things called shadows. And light has a funny way of not reaching every corner, even if you do pull a car up to your barn. Even so, not all barns are designed like that. Plus, where I live, during the winter it is total darkness around five in the afternoon.
