Well, I could be wrong but from the photo it looks like what I've seen many times before when the periople comes off. The hoof wall is intact underneath and it is not a problem. If you don't live in a very wet environment you may not have seen it before. The periople gets so soft that they will scrape their leg over something or have a boot on and it will do this.

Do you have a photo of the bottom of the hoof.
To me it looks like a waterlogged, possibly thrushy hoof.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.
