Easyboot Grips

  • Grips_07_031
    We rode today in the snow and mud using Easyboot Grips on both of the horses. They did so well in them, even going up and down steep hills they never slipped. It was such fun!

I use G.E. nippers. I had to mail order them, and they weren't cheap, but they are much better than the Diamond nippers you can get at Buchheits, etc. HTH!

I like diamond brand nippers.

I love GE...Diamonds are hard to trim with and not as sharp/staying sharp. GEs are hardy too..have had them stomped on and thrown outta my hands by drafts even and they are still in great shape. They ARE a bit pricer, but you can get them a little cheaper from farrier outlets (like Anvilbrand.com)...Also good, if you have smaller hands, get the "race" ones...they are a little shorter and lighter than the "standard" ones and great for any of us girly-girl types with smaller hands :P THey are worth the price and will last forever (and for 50$, if they eventually have issues, you can send them back to GE for a rebuild, which will make them back to almost new)

I also use GE nippers, in 12" size. They are very precise and easy to handle.

In the 25 plus years I have been doing this I have owned a few different nippers, Diamond, Mustad, GE, Nordic forge.....

GE is hard to beat and thats worth the extra cash

I trimmed over 60 horses this week and only used my nippers on maybe 15 horses (mostly drafts)

For what its worth in the rasp dept.
I like the Simonds heller legend rasp for muddy conditions
Save edge for dryer conditions

GO BAREFOOT natural hoof care

To echo what everyone else has said: GE Nippers & Simond's Rasps are hard to beat... Plus excellent loop knifes at http://www.loopknives.com/

All the best,

I have been using 12" GE nippers professionally for 3 years. They are high quality, easy to operate with one hand, and will work for all sizes of hooves from draft horses to minis.

I also use & love GE nippers. They have taken a beating but stand up to it.
