Unhappy The bulb of my horse's hoof seems to be coming off

A farrier came and saw my horse and gave her a trim, she didn't need much. A day or so later I noticed that the bulb of her front left hoof looked like it was peeling and part of it was hanging on. It has been like that for a while (I assumed it'd come off, he just didn't get the rest of it very good is what I told myself). When I pick her feet it doesn't seem very sensitive but I am afraid to mess with it much. Any tips of what I should do? I am going down to the barn and give her a little medication for thrush from where it has been so rainy and my horse, for some reason, likes to stand in the rain and muck I will get a picture of it and post it on this thread. The thrush isn't very bad, but I am afraid for that part of her hoof. What should I do about it?
