IMO, and mind you I am far from an expert, if this condition has been allowed to go on for so long there would be a real worry of having a thin sole under the "splat" as you put it. My horses are in soft sand, so it helps a bit w "recovery", but I would want an expert to determine what to do, if anything, after they were pared off. I had never seen anything like it before, either.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
