Mate! No wonder the crack hasn't changed - again, sounds like that's the least of his worries. That's WAY too long to neglect feet, especially if shod! 6 weeks is about as long as I'd leave a horse shod without a reset. I don't think it's at all fair to even think about judging the farrier's work considering how long it's been left for.

Apologies for replying to your other thread before seeing this one. Would be easier to keep it all together. Particularly as he's been left shod for so long, I'd get him (frequently) trimmed & leave him unshod for a while at least, to hopefully undo some of the damage done. **Not blaming shoes as such, but don't think it'd be a good move to keep shoeing those feet. I also expect he's not a likely 'candidate' for working barefoot, so he'll very likely need padded boots for work at least.

I'd personally be hesitant to do much of that with a 4yo anyway, but I'd definitely want his feet in much better shape before doing high-impact stuff.
