I am still a little confused here because to me they look like cracks and out of about 7 horses he is the only one who has them, and this is the first time in the year i have owned him they have looked like that... with that being said i have been giving him bigger rations of his supplements to keep weight on through the winter and the snow keeps coming then melting away so not the best conditions...
I think its hard to judge from the pics but i have someone coming out tomorrow and we will do a close examination to look for any bruising as such.
Getting back to his diet i have probably put about 200 lbs on this guy since i owned him he gets a high protien, high fat, and high fibre supplement. His hoofs are now growing at a alarming rate especially considering its winter, i will have my farrier come out and make a judgement but thanks for the replies i am fairly new to this and the learning just never seems to stop... i was just a bit worried because i read when all of them crack like that it can be bad news depending how deep the cracks are and if its a problem i would want it looked at asap, i was aso worried about the change of angle on mostly the fronts thx again:).
