Well, huge pics can be irritating(not having a state of the art computer!), but afraid your pic is too small to show any detail. Also be interested to see the hoof & crack from below.

From what can be seen, while diet/nutrition may well be a prob too & may have contributed(there's a definite change half way down, that could be metabolic/nutritional), this looks like a typical crack due to overlong/imbalanced feet. Keeping the hooves *well* trimmed & 'rolling' the outer walls *should* allow it to grow out, tho if there's infection in there, you will have to treat that too, which may include cutting it out too.

Ive only had him for around two months and my farrier who trimmed him said its not infected or anything. So the farriers diffently taking measures to trim.correctly. I well get a picture tomorrow.

Great. I'd be inclined to 'brush up' the roll, at least in that area, in between trims, rather than leaving it the 4-6 weeks between visits. Your farrier will hopefully be willing to teach you how to do this & even give you one of his/her old rasps for the job See signature link for more info.
