Most farriers will GIVE you one of their old rasps (which will still be fine for touch ups) and show you how to use it. That thing looks like an overpriced gimmick.

How can you round the edge of the hoof with something that has a square/right angle to it?

If you don't know how to use a regular rasp - you probably shouldn't be "touching up" hooves. I could see a lot of horse owners who don't have an understanding of balance messing up their horses hooves with that thing or using it as an excuse to put off getting their horses properly trimmed.

I don't know...I think it looks kind of cool. My husband and I trim our horses feet and while the tools fit my husband fine I find them unwieldy. I might try it.

You should look at a 10-12" pony rasp then.

It was a good discussion on that in other section. I personally would NOT use it.

Why in the world would you spend $50 on a ill-devised gimmick when you can pay $20 for a good rasp that's smaller and lighter? Just what you want! That just seems like wasteful spending to me, even if the thing works half-way decent.

I have had a few farriers comment on it and all three laughed and said it was the biggest crock they'd ever seen...

Good grief! It's not your money! I just like trying new things...maybe I'm a gadget person

It's not something you can use to replace a traditional rasp. It's only meant to be for touch ups between regular trimmings.
