Question Can I rasp a Bruised Hoof?

So I rasp my horses feet, but just yesterday I noticed that her hoof had an old bruise in it, it was on the tip of her toe, and was a lightish pink line. I was wondering if I can rasp it down,(as her hooves are a bit long) I know how to rasp so don't get me wrong And would it hurt her or somthing?

I usually take bruises out with the knife or rasp as long as they aren't too deep. A light pink shouldnt be too deep though, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Bruising in the wall is generally from above - stays pink until open to the air. No worries about rasping, but ask your farrier about it because it could be a sign of hoof imbalance or such, particularly if they're too long.

Thank-you guys, loosie, I don't think its a major. Its pretty small and its very light, I just wanted to make sure it wont hurt her because bruises hurt us lol .
