We are proud to present this Convex Rasping Tool made specifically for Removing Excess Horn from Bars and Sole.
Not only is this just a great product for everyone, but for those who have weak hands or find it difficult to use a hoof knife this product is ideal! With this tool you don't have to worry about knife slipping and cutting something you didn't want cut and it does a great job of removing material from the underside of the hoof both safely and quickly.
The SR-1 'Original' has standard pointed rasp teeth and white plastic handles. These teeth can 'grind down' bumps and ridges but leave a somewhat coarse finish to the sole horn. n The rasp is made from high grade steel and heat treated for maximum hardness.
The horn of the hoof sole in domestic horses often becomes deteriorated or grows excessively thick in some areas. The Bar & Sole Rasps provide you with an additional means of cleaning out decayed horn to promote optimal hoof health. This rasp has a varied curve that provides multiple ways to grip and apply the aspects of the rasp's cutting surface. This ideal shape allows you to clean both the broader arc of the sole and the tighter curves near the bars and heels. In addition, the rasp has a tapered point for picking, cleaning and scraping. It easily chops packed dirt from the sole and effectively scrapes grit out of the grooves along the sides of the frog or from cracks in the white line and wall. There are several ways to grip this rasp in both single and double handed grips. Using the point of the rasp will to clean the hoof prevents you from dulling your hoof knife, nippers, and flat hoof rasp on sand or gravel embedded in the white line. The Bar & Sole Rasps are easier to use than a hoof knife and give you more precise, gradual control as you remove unhealthy or excess horn from the sole and bars It can be used in either one or two handed grips.
