Hoof Nippers
Nippers are used to remove the surplus growth of the hoof wall. Several sizes are available: 14, 15 and 16 inch nippers are used where more leverage is needed on dry hoofs and on draft horses; 12 inch nippers can be used on show horses, racehorses and foals and those with weak hand strength.

Our nippers can be rebuilt at least 2 times unless chips in the blade are too deep.  The heat treated area is about 1/4" to 1/2" and both blades. This is good news because if you do hit a nail, they most likely won't break past this point.

All nippers are heat treated and sharpened by a professional bladesmith in Camp Verde, Arizona.
