hoof absess/blown wall?

So over a month ago my HQ got a hoof absess and now the back of his hoof has a cut all along the back, about a week after he got the absess. How long till its grown back? Should I get boots for him or what to do?
This is about week and a half ago

Wow, that's a good blow out! I think the biggest thing you need to be careful about is further infection. This would be a great environment for growing thrush. It depends on his environment, etc as to whether he may need protection too. May also need to be opened up by the farrier. I'd probably be inclined to soak it in a strong salt solution every couple of days for a week or so, which will help it dry out & deter further infection.

We have soaked it a few times past the time our wet said so, they can go into our barn when its wet out and after he gets wet a little he goes inside.

Well since he's well due for a trim, the farrier should cut it all back for you.

What I mean it, you could trim that frog up yourself, but since he's due for a trim, the farrier should do it.

hoof, repair?
