Is there any smell? Is it soft or firm? Of course, with the wet yard, the frog is probably generally soft, but is it equally soft all over?
That hoof is cleaned out and I can stick a hoof pick in that crack id say a good inch.
Haven't smelled it so don't know if it stinks.
As far as needing a trim don't know when that will happen can't find a farrier. I sure can't trim him iv been hurting to bad.
