northernmama: If he had WLD would the farrier have said something? As I mentioned in an earlier post I have never felt any heat (before or after being worked) in any part of his hooves, he is not lame, he is not sore, does not have any problems with hoof testers, no flattening of the sole or dishing anywhere, and no hollow sound when tapped with numerous items. The hoof actually feels pretty solid (despite all the cracks) and I understand that is probably hard to believe considering what they look like.
I am only applying the cream to the coronary band.
Thank you for all the help!
Is it okay to ride him when his feet are in this condition?
WLD does not always show pain symptoms until very far advanced. The hoof may feel solid to you, but a strong hoof is stronger than a steel shoe, so without experience you may not be able to tell how strong that foot really is or isn't. If your horse isn't lame, you could ride him, but I, personally, wouldn't do more than a walk until this situation is properly assessed and in positive treatment. Heartache may be around the corner.
I'm glad to hear you are looking after this. Please do everything in your power to get another farrier / trimmer out there to look at him.
