Hoof Wizard

Hi, I was hoping to find out from anyone if they have used the Hoof Wizard product? I have been checking it out from some friends who told me about it but they have not used it yet. Has anyone else. Looks like it should work. www.hoofwizard.com.

Thanks,
Bill

I have never heard of this before but from reading the website it sounds helpful. I am curious to know if anyone has used this too now. My dad is my farrier, our horses are all barefoot so something like this might be useful.

Pinto, I found some farriers local that have the product and they did not have time to come to my place so I went to watch them use it on some other horses at a ranch not to far from me. It was very interesting to watch it used. After watching it used in person here is what I got from it:

1) It allowed me, as an owner, to see just what the expert farrier saw. After talking with one of the farriers he said that is what is so great is that the owners understand what is going on and are more comfortable with the whole process done on each horse.

2) This is not a gauge or a trimming device. It is to show how the horse is wearing itself over time. Used on a consistent basis you are able to find out what kind of wear and tear your horse does. What the farrier said to me was that the tool helps to see all sides of the hoof so he does not have to try to remember what the inside balance line was when looking at the outside. It gives you the right line all the way around.

3) Is it the perfect template? I am going to get one and use it once a week on my gelding so I can see and see how my farrier likes it. She was very happy to try it out when she comes out. Only time will tell.

I am always interested in learning more about my horses and what can help them and I hope this will.

Sounds good from your little report there hehe. I might try and see if there are any Sydney farriers with this and go watch too.
