    What hoof trimmers do you guys like? I'll need to trim for the first time soon and am unsure what to get.

    TIA

    Can't remember the brand... but we picked up an expensive pair of the kind that @Latestarter shows above. The reviews were way better than less expensive ones.. hold an edge longer.

    But we had one goat were we really needed a rasp to trim her hooves... just the way they grew.

    Also a hoof pick. It is handy to clean everything out. But I guess you could use almost anything as a pick.

    I use horse hoof nippers now, FAR easier for me than any hoof shears.
