I hope he didn't say "Seedy toe" because seedy toe IS white line disease, therefore is, indeed, something to worry about.

Agreed, pictures would be great.

Agreed maybe the vet should see the hooves.

Agreed maybe a new farrier is in order.

It sounds like seedy toe (WLD) or vitamin E/selenium poisoning. Either one is a tough thing to deal with. Agree with others that pics would help.

A hoof does not need to be long to chip or crack. A horse with well-trimmed hooves can still chip it's hooves if they are not strong enough, or with enough force on a hard surface.
Whoops my mistake........I mistook the picture that was posted for her horse.....sorry about that...........but I stand by my comment about the picture of the hoof.....that it is in a bad need of a trim.

And yes I do agree that even well trimmed hooves do crack and chip.

PS.......Would be great if you could post a picture of your horses feet.

What picture was posted? I don't see a picture in this thread!

Just a word of caution about canker..........if it is this is something that needs to be treated aggressively and immediately........we just had a horse up here in our area die due to this..........the owner left it to long before addressing the issue.......the horse ended up with surgery to debride and they ended up putting him down a month later as the disease came back.

Ew, no it's not canker. It is on the out side people. OUTSIDE! Lol. The farrier instructed to not even treat the under side of her hoof because I need to stay away from the frog. And also to be sure to stay away from the hair line. The chips are not even very bad, not nearly has gross as the picture that was posted earlier. I think I am scarying everyone.. lol

The outside of the hoof cannot hold bacteria, yeast, or fungus. The air and sunlight would kill all of the above. The best way to treat that would be to keep the horse in dry conditions outside and use a topical like Hoof Heal to keep the hoof from drying out too much. Hoof Heal has ingrediants in it that kill and prevent infection. Bleach would over-dry the hoof, making the peeling worse.

I think you may need a second opinion from a different farrier...

And you really need to post pictures when you ask for hoof related advice.
