Thanks for your feedback, btw.
Look at the right front foot pic. You see how the Hoof wall is above the sole level. Sometimes you get a Dry Rot in the lammel which is what holds the sole and wall together, kind like a layer of glue and it´s lost it´s addhesion.

Laminea - the white line between inner and outer hoof wall. The part that is actually alive and growing.

Amigoboy is right. I'd be looking for thrush or white line disease. Sometimes it's called seedy toe. Thrush isn't hard to cure. White line disease is harder because it's usually deeper.

Sharp hoof knife time. A pick isn't going to take it out.

That could be just a plain old crack with some dirt stuffed up in too. I'd have to put my glasses on and see it in person.

Pictures do have some limitations.

Her feet have looked like this the last two times the farrier has come out and she's not said anything about seedy toe or white line disease. I'm thinking it might just be dirt, but I'll scrub it out real good and take another picture or ten.

Ask the farrier when he comes out next but keeping it good and clean can't hurt.

Maybe a picture will show it, maybe not. Patty didn't comment on it either and she's very knowledgeable. If it were my horse I'd be scrubbing and sniffing and asking.

Okay! Scrub, sniff, ask! That's my plan. :)

It will require a hoof knife to get it out.
This is a task fore the SIDE of the blade, not the hooked tip! . You work the SIDE of the blade set mostly horizontally in under one of the obvious cracks and use it to remove that section of dead sole then find the next crack and do the same, cracks are your friends.... they tell you where to put the side of the knife blade.
