I hope your horse recovers I really do! and I pray she is sound! :)
Just know that when there is damage to the cornet band on a horses hoof it never "heals", well at least not what I have been told and with my gelding.
I will have to get you a picture of my geldings hoof but he is 100% sound and never had any issues with it.
His original owners that have had him from birth told me when he was young he slipped backing out of a horse trailer and cut his leg a little and damaged the cornet band. He has always and will always have a "crack" from the cornet band on his hoof alway down.(I have just bought him but he has belonged to my "little sister" for the past 3 years) I keep him on a hoof supplement and from time to time I will have him shoed depending on how heavy we are showing but he has good feet and does not need the shoes. Has been both vet and farrier cleared. :)
P.S. Your horse is beautiful and it is a shame that this has happened to her :( the worst always happens to the best it seems :(
