I've been dealing with these little chips and cracks in the front hooves for a few months. The weather keeps changing from super wet (Hurricane Ike) to super dry (no rain in over 2 weeks after Ike). I've been soaking them once a week in ACV because he has some white line fungus type stuff in there. Also you can see the rings from the acute laminitis scare back in March growing out. Could the weather changes be causing the cracks? Stretched laminae growing out near bottom surface causing cracks?
And then this big chip is in his hind foot. We've been dealing with this one for several years. It seems like it just gets down to ground level and then chips off again! Frustrating! His hoof looks like it is at a weird angle in the picture...but its just from me digging the dirt out from around it for the picture.
Any tips on how I should adjust the trim to help solve these issues?
