F.Dick Ascot Professional Hoof knife $65
Right or left handed (please indicate)
I have tried many different knives, from custom made loop knives to other similar looking brands, but I always come back to this tool for the quality of the steel, the elasticity of the blade and its shape. Thousands of barehoof trimmers have learned and have coninued to work with this knife.
I trim any hoof (big or small, no matter how challenging) and every tricky corner) with this knife. It is my absolute favourite! The handle is rosewood and is ergonomically shaped.
Bellota Professional Farrier Rasp $40
My personal favourite, as it matches my level of strength. Some bigger teethed rasps may have more "bite", but I would also need more strength to apply them without getting stuck....
Instead of bigger cutting teeth, this rasp has more (see picture of the cutting surface), and therefore has a lot of "grunt".
It is economical (stays sharp for many trims, even in dry hoof/summer conditions as the quality of the steel seems to stay consistent (which seems to be a bonus ;-) ).
Safe Edge Professional Farrier Rasp$40
My "other favourite" rasp. This rasp has a very similar cutting action (just right for my strength- but I hear from my supplier that this is also one of the most popular rasps with the guys..... my farrier colleagues!)
Rasp Handle (smooth wood, scew on) $15
This not only saves your hands and makes the proper use of the rasp possible, it also prevents you from sticking the sharp end of the rasp up your ... or your horse's nose :-). An accessory I strongly recommend!
Not only is the design and fit absolutely superb, it is also made right here in Oz by "Luscious Leather's" Leonie Quick!
The apron comes in almost any colour or colour combination you can think of (why not ad a bit of fun when trimming!) .
Extra knife pockets can be added on request.
And you can place your orders through The Organic Shop!
I am working in one of Leonie's "bottle-green-on-black-creations" which matches the rest of my work outfits (will ad picture as soon as I find someone to photograph me), so I feel rather fashionable........
(Ever heard a farrier or trimmer say that? Hahah....... that's the female touch in this previously male dominated profession)
Tool Garage $19.50
When you look after and store your tools properly, they will last you a long time! These tool pockets are ideal for your rasp/nipper and knives. Add a little oil and your tools will stay rust free and sharp!
Another one of Leonie's Luscious Leather creations. (Many colours available as well).
Swiss Knife Sharpener (Kerckhaert) $35
The super hard titanium sharpening edge will sharpen any cutting tool, including your hoof knife. It even reaches
into the curl of your F.Dick hoof knife! I don't use any other sharpener and couldn't live without it!
Nordic Forge Professional Hoof Nippers $205
Excellent "middle of the range" hoof nippers. I work with them (14" handles) all the time and am very happy with them.
Straight forward quality tool that is easy to use - even when you deal with hard summer hooves......
These nippers have sharp, flat cutting blades and can easily compete with some of the "top of the range" tools.

Equine Landmark Anatomy & Acupoint Energetics DVD (54 min) $60
This DVD and Manual break new ground in the field of acupressure and acupuncture. They provide an exceptional tool for the veterinary professional, bodywork practitioners, and students of acupressure and acupuncture.
This equine video:
Identifies significant anatomical landmarks
Discusses how to locate acupoints
Demonstrates the flow of the 12 Major Meridians, Conception & Governing Vessels
Describes the function, location, and energetics of all the acupoints in the major acupoint classifications and key acupoints.
Proudly modelled here by my pony "Munschkin", who is "glucose intolerant" since she foundered when she was only 4 years old. Rather than locking up the "metabolically challenged", a grazing muzzle is a great alternative.
After an initial training period (some horses/ponies learn to "operate" the muzzle within 10 seconds :-) ) the muzzle wearer can join the herd and be out in the paddock, living like a normal horse (albeit wearing a muzzle), so he or she can exercise and still follow his/ her instincts. Now grazing will not happen "by the mouthful" but rather
"blade by blade".
Remember "Prevention is better than cure! .... And nothing is as cruel as having to suffer laminitis/founder!
