There is at least as much dead hoof there as most horses would grow in three months or more.
So it is likely the hooves were left too long to begin with. If they get trimmed adequately this time , then all that broken stuff should be trimmed off or nearly trimmed off and it wont be bad at all. But if the farrier leaves in thick dead sole then the foot is not getting trimmed enough.

Well that's better! What's the foot with the 'issue'? Is it just that it's a bit clubby or something else? I do think this one particularly still has a fair bit of excess toe - that is, forward, not from the ground surface. It is likely flared forward more than the other because of the horse putting more pressure & therefore leverage at the toe. The quarter flares probably won't be able to improve much so long as the horse is shod &/or trimmed flat on the ground surface.

The foot with the "issue" is slightly clubbed. But thats the one that was all chipped up and has lost the shoe. It looks so much better.

He said if she looses anymore hoofwall, shes out til next year. So im praying this will hold and continue to improve. I just got her and am sending her to my trainer monday, so im keeping my fingers crossed!

Im happy with the outcome.
