Question Hoof Crack on shod horse Picture included **Need input**

My ridding horse has a pretty good crack in his RF hoof just below the shoe.
he's not lame but iam a bit concerned he could go lame. Can take more pictures if needed. Do I need to get farrier out or wait till next appointment june 9th. Was done on april 20th.

Near his heel? Maybe more pics would help.

I can't really see anything from the picture. June 9th is almost a month away, his hoof will continue to grow and possibly make it worse. If you are concerned call your farrier. Even if it costs you to have him out, it will be better than your horse being laid off for a while and trying to fix the results of the crack.

Yes, have someone look at it. Your farrier or another. Can't say for sure by the angle of the pic, but looks to be short shod (shoe to small). If doing any kind of serious riding, then the crack may present a problem in conjunction w/ a shoe that's to small.

Looking again, I agree. Shoe is overhanging colateral grove/frog.Should be fine till next reset so long as no rocks get jammed in there. Just goes to show what you see in pictures sometimes. LOL

Thats fine sometimes one has to take a second look to see everything the way it is.Iam still a little worried that crack could go into the heel bulb what are your thoughts on that.We do ride them hard and flys are out so lots of stompping going on now.

Shouldn't be a problem. Not really a crack, just the transition from frog to wall/heel. Only thing that may happen is a rock could get stuck there while riding/working and could cause lameness/bruising.

Bnt- now that you pointed that out, it's exactly what that looks like! Pictures can be really deceiving!
