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 thanks again:).
