That's because you should have tried horse foot - bears don't even have hooves! And you have heard of herds of bears??
But seriously, there is a lot more to just keeping them BARE. If the horse is regularly trimmed to be well balanced, any excess pressure is kept off the region of the crack, and any infection is treated effectively, it will grow out, tho there may always be a 'fault line' if it's a severe & chronic one.
