    Yeah Nutty, I was just pointing out that I don't think it *wears* away. More like eaten away, in conjunction with bad mechanics causing leverage. Would be interested to see some recent pics of that horse's feet??

    Elbandita, you're talking of the above pic? Some similarities with OP(tho obviously pony not half that bad) & yes, I'm confident to say that there is definitely WLD present in both, which is exacerbating the problems. Separation doesn't generally *cause* WLD though IMO, but WLD commonly causes separation. WLD/Seedy toe is an opportunistic infection that can get into unhealthy/compromised hoof tissue. It can be bacterial, fungal or otherwise.

    You should NOT I ..... repeat NOT..... trim that sole over the toe without knowing if she is foundered and knowing how to tell if it is excess dead sole or actually BULGING sole due to a rotated coffin bone !!!!!
    If she is foundered and the coffin bone is rotated, the edge of the bone could be VERY CLOSE to the ground and that "lump" of sole could be the only thing covering it.
    A FAR better thing to try while waiting for the farrier is to cut some dense foam padding top fit inside the bottom of the foot and fill the bottom of the foot with it, and duct tape it on. Gardner's foam kneeling pads work, or constriction grade firm styrofoam.
