From everything I have read lately, yep sure could. Did it? That I would want a REALLY good opinion on.
I read one way to "fix" it is float the hoof slightly under the jammed area. Bring it down over time so it doesn't crack, but do it fast enough to get the relief so they don't crack. It's a fine line when you are talking about hooves *sigh*
General consensus seems to be that once you get them straightened out, it's a whole lot easier to keep them that way.
ETA: I wonder if pads help this also... providing support, but helping a bit more give when you float the area. I gotta remember to ask this one to the farrier when/if he comes to do Rascals feet Friday.
I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.
