Well, yesterday I had the farrier out to reset shoes. Anyway, my TB who does not have as good of wall as my SB, lost chunks of his wall next to the heel. I of course thought I went too long before having him reset. My farrier said no its just hoof quality and that some years he sees more of this than others. While my SB was fine, I still wonder if it being a few weeks longer than normal if it could have contributed to this. Now he is talking about building them up and filling in where the chunks are missing if it continues. I guess I am just wanting to get thoughts on this. Thanks.
Oh and it was the back hooves. One worse than the other. Makes me feel like I need to stay off of him and just admire from afar. I have been riding more lately.
Also, any ideas of what I can do to build up and strengthen his walls??
