I have acquired two horses for a time while they are unable to be agisted by the owner elsewhere.
Their hooves are terrible. Very long, one is hobbling. They are very overgrown (and I don't know much about horses but I can see this isn't right) so have the farrier this week coming to help sort it out.
One seems to have inflammation or something at the back of the rear hooves in the frog/central groove? I have added pics, not sure how clear the red/inflamed area is. They are not great pics but I will get some better ones when I have the farrier there to help me.
Can anyone advise what it could be? Obviously I will ask the farrier and go from there if vet is required etc.
Any advice greatly appreciated! Thanks!
