Haven't used it yet. It's a gift for a friend. Seems very sturdy.
and I'm so surprised when I used this one! Until I held this one I'd never thought about comfort in your hand. And the pick is efficient and I can clean out the hoof quicker. The brush makes quick work of finishing the hoof! You can't ask for better.
I had a hoof pick without a brush and decided that having a brush would probably help. It does!
