New Rasp

Just saw this new rasp:

Riders Rasp - Rasp / Hoof Picks / Hoof Knives

anyone use it yet? I am thinking about getting it to use on my weanling to get rid of his rough edges when he gets chips between farrier visits.

It looks pretty neat. Does it have a coarse side and a fine side? I can't tell.

Peace, Love, and Ponies of all shapes and sizes.

It's probably not the best tool for filing horse feet, especially for the price, and I doubt there is a rough and smooth edge given the size. I would invest in a 'real' horse rasp, if you are wanting to help your baby's feet. But, you really need to seek out a farrier first, in order to make sure you are getting the angles correct, especially because they are young and developing.

I have a real rasp. This one seems better, IMO because youre not really messing with angles, your just gently smoothing the edges.

That was a discussion about this "device" on this forum while back when it just came on market. I (and number of other people here who do own trim) don't like the idea of it. :) You can look I believe in "Tack" section.

I read the discussion and most people thought it was a waste of money. I thought it was a neat idea, but actual reviews made it seems a waste.

If you just want to clean up rough edges/chips between farrier visits, you can find a 'generic' hoof rasp for less than $10 at the online equine supply stores that will last you for years.
