iron forged hoof pick?
I can't get out today with the snow to take a pic, but I have the most marvelous hoof pick that I bought from a former farrier. We kind of split ways ungracefully, so I was hoping it might be common enough to be able to buy online or from someone else. It's the only thing that works with our ice balls in the hooves. I like the jackhammer hoofpick, but the key is that I need a heavy duty iron one so I can pick, flip it it over and hammer with the back of it, and flip it back around to pick out the rest. It's works wonderfully, but I need another. It's great... I don't have to juggle a hammer and a hoof pick. It has enough leverage and weight that it has enough oomph to break up the ice. Any ideas or should I go groveling back begging to buy another :lol:?
Picture, please!!!! :yes:
Is there any chance your current farrier can make a replica for you?
If not, maybe find someone else who is a client of your former farrier and have them buy a dozen for you to avoid having to have egg on your face.... :yes: ;) :winkgrin:
Is it something specific to that farrier or is it just a clinch cutter like this that you often see farriers using as a hoof pick?
I'll definitely take a pic. I have a feeling I'm going to have to bite the bullet. I'll find someone to buy some from me ring, ring... Hi, I got your name from someone and she said you make hoofpicks that she just LOVES and I'd love to buy some! :lol: She definitely makes them herself, and no it's not like a clinch cutter. They're cool. They're curvy so easy to get leverage with for picking and banging on the ice.
There's a guy on Etsy who makes forged horse stuffs..... let me see if I can find his shop.
ETA: Here's the shop. They don't have anything like that, but they may be able to make you something appropriate as they appear to speak horse.
I found this one too.
