Another use for hoof picks.....
Did you ever think of using a hoof pick for your own boots? I have a pair of redwings that have "super soles", and lots of tread, so I use a hoof pick to remove mud. Any other ideas?

I've used them to put on English riding boots.

LOL I do the same thing; they come in handy with scraping away mud; I also use the brush part to brush off mud too.

I use new hoof picks to clean my water buckets if I can't find my brush. (I own more hoof picks then horses)

Lol, I always thought a clean one would make a good Back scratcher!

I think that would work great, thanks for the idea :)
