Cut in hoof??

I recently went to look at this gelding to purchase, but have since changed my mind. I took pictures of his hoof because of what looks like a cut. I was wondering if anyone knows what this is and if it's harmful to the horse.

It will not harm the horse in any way. It will simply grow down and out. I wouldn't give it a second thought.
I have been shoing for 24 years now and run into this evey now and then. The coronary band was just injured and it will grow out.
Don't let it influence you.

Thanks. I was just wondering. I changed my mind about buying him because of other things, not his hoof. I was just curious as to what it was and if it was harmful to him.

My filly got one this pat summer, not quite that big though. As it grew out it broke off.. There was a big chunk missing but she wasn't sore. We had the farrier come out and he said it was fine, just to let it continue growing out. However, like I said her's much about half that size
