Okay so my Fjord/Arab gelding has had a problem with his left front hoof for a year or two now. HE always seems to have a little crack in it. Our farrier trims it and tries to get the crack out but it keeps coming back. This time he tried something differant though. He trimmed the crack out, making a V shape where the crack was. That didn't bother me because he had done it before. This time though he did it deeper. Plus after he sealed it by using a blowtorch. He heated up a piece of metal and when that was slow he actually blew on the hoof with the blow torch. I'm wondering what you all think of this? Was it the right thing to do?
If you need pictures I can try and get some.
