Does this look like white line?

So my little pony I got from Camelot a few weeks ago had his feet trimmed about two weeks ago. A few days ago I noticed the white line looked smooshy. When I picked out his hoof it made an indent at the white line but wasn't deteriorating so much that I could carve into it. Just in some places was musher then others. I will post pix of what I mean. Maybe I'm just overly paranoid because my mare has a severe case of it right now and we have to cut the hoof wall off and put on corrective shoes. :(

In this one it's on the left side.


Excuse his feet are very dirty!

I think you are worrying over nothing. I keep my guys barefoot and they look the same.....probably worse. What happens I think that as their feet grow out they start to flare a touch and then that causes some separation at the white line. If you really want to be particular about it, you can keep the feet constantly trimmed and mustang rolled and that should help or eliminate any separation.

But what I find is that if I keep my horses feet super short they are more sensitive in the rocks so I live with a little bit of excess hoof wall on my horses because that way I can actually ride them successfully barefoot instead of booting every ride.

So I try to walk the line of keeping them short enough not to have flare/separation and actually having them functional. I have a friend who never trims her horses but rides them and lets the feet break off. They look awful but are functional. I am not condoning that and would never do that myself, but it just illustrates that a little excess wall helps protect the sole.

So anyway, her feet look normal to me and she actually has a really healthy looking frog.

Thanks! His feet were actualy just done two weeks ago but were a tad over due before then. I got him from Camelot a couple weeks ago so any history is unknown. The vet said to just paint his feet with sole paint. (An iodine mix the vet gave me for my mares severe white line) I just get so paranoid because currently we are battling it with my mare!

See, just the fact he was overdue before you got him probably caused the tiny bit of separation you are seeing. So no worries.
