Where to buy farrier equipment

A while ago, someone sent me to Star Ridge Company -- but I can't seem to get there tonight. Locally my choices are: greenhawk, greenhawk or greenhawk. I have yet to drive to the other side of town (1 1/2 hrs away) to see if in the richer part of horse country here they have farrier equiment. Maybe this week...

Anyway, does anyone buy farrier equipment on line in Canada? I need a rasp and if I can't find a decent priced one specifically for hooves, I will do what we did before -- get a wood rasp. It works, but I'd like to try a proper rasp. Anyone?

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

only thing I would add is when buying farrier tools,
buy the best you can afford.

It takes and hr and a half to drive across town?

Ive had to deal with a wood rasp before. It was a whole inch wide. fun fun.

I now have 3 hoof rasps in my kit, so if one blunts or gets lost I have a spare to get by til I replace it.

Brittany and Shmurmur4 -- both those places are in the states. by the time I pay for shipping and duties, it's not worth it.

Miss Katie -- Ya, 1-1/2 hrs.... but to be fair, this is pretty rural country and I'm not actually "in town" -- I'm already 45 minutes just from this side of town -- so another 45 minutes gets me to the "other side" of town! I've done the wood rasp lots -- actually never had a real, honest-to-goodness hoof rasp and I'm finally going to do it.

RegalCharm -- I agree -- buying the best you can afford is always a good idea. That's why I'm shopping around. So far the prices vary from $30 to $50 not including tax or shipping.

Anyone buy these things online in Canada????
