Hoof Buffer Original Flex
now with a sturdy aluminum handle
An essential finishing tool, designed to
follow one or both Radius Rasps, or to
follow a conventional straight rasp. The
Hoof Buffer blends all edges of the roll
uniformly. It is particularly important for
rounding the upper border of the roll to
eliminate any "edge" that might promote
flaring and cracking.
For those that have tried sandpaper as a
finishing tool, the Hoof Buffer has an easier
action and gives more consistent results.
The turnbuckle allows for several tension
adjustments. If one loosens the tension on
the Hoof Buffer, the paper "folds around"
the hoof more and there is then less
aggressive action (horn removal) as a result.
If the turnbuckle is tightened the sandpaper
applies firmer pressure and more aggressive
The turnbuckle can also be loosened to
rotate the surface of the sandpaper so all
parts of the sandpaper are used evenly.
The handle is made from long-lasting
Please note: The body of the Hoof Buffer is
now made from metal, creating an even
sturdier tool. The Hoof Buffer price includes
the wrench for making adjustments, and 2
belts -- one fine grade belt which comes on
the tool and one coarse grade spare
The tension may be
adjusted to vary the action
of the sandpaper.
" I am a natural hoof care practitioner in the UK. I ordered your radius rasp and hoof buffer to see if they
would be tools I could recommend to my clients who want to do some work on their horses' hooves
themselves. The radius rasp is so effective! Small, light, sharp and puts the roll on beautifully. The hoof
buffer then gives a finish that any farrier would be proud of. I will carry the tools with me to
demonstrate their use." -- Julie from the United Kingdom
" I am enjoying the [Evolutionary] tools I purchased from you. They are easy to use and I'm having a good
result." -- Linda from Wisconsin

The Hoof Buffers:
Original & Pro
Hoof Buffer PRO Flex Rasp
with sturdy aluminum handle
The Hoof Buffer Pro is a more aggressive
version of the Hoof Buffer Original. Its
flexible steel blade has 'star-shaped' teeth
that act like sandpaper but will not clog
and will last longer than a sanding belt.
These teeth remove horn more like the
smooth side of a standard flat hoof rasp.
But they cut in all directions with each
stroke, forward and backward or side to
side. So when you have more horn to
remove from the outer edge and sides of
the hoof wall, the Hoof Buffer Pro will do
This tool is especially effective in
rounding the upper edge of the Mustang
Roll around the outer hoof wall and
removing existing or potential flares.
While this blade removes horn faster than
the sanding belt of the Hoof Buffer
Original, it does not leave as smooth a
finish to the wall surface. The overall
effect of its teeth is between that of the
Hoof Buffer Original sanding belt and the
perforated teeth of the Radius Rasp
Tool comes with long-lasting aluminum
handle and one metal blade (on the tool).
Please note: The Hoof Buffer Original
replacement belts are not interchangeable
with the Hoof Buffer Pro replacement
blades, or vice versa due to differences in
