Sherlock Spotted! I was looking at the pink stuff thinking what the heck! I didn't even pay attention to the rest of the hoove!

'Excuse me Miss, your horse has yet to pay for the manicure!' haha! Too Funny!

If they a purple little marks on the white hoof, it is a bruise, normally it doesn't affect the horse, but if the horse is lame it could have abcessed and would need to drain. Which is what some of the other threads are talking about:)

Hi,

Bruising is commonly seen on white hooves. It's just as common on dark hooves, but you just can't see it - which is where I think the myth about white hooves came from. It doesn't tend to cause lameness IME, unless it's severe enough to abscess.

It can be due to the horse having bashed their hoof, but commonly, such as in the pics that were posted(not yours, can't tell much from them, what with the pink paint), it can be due to hoof imbalances & too much stress/load on walls/laminae. If they are small, light areas, this is an indication that the imbalance & stress probably isn't very severe, but I'd still take the 'symptom' as an indication something may need changing.

If there are pink rings horizontally around the hooves, &/or ridges & defined lines, this is an indication that a laminitic event has very likely occurred at that point.
