Narrow cracks in hooves?
We baught arab x tb from a breeding home, and her feet are pretty appalling.
She did a lot of roadwork in her previous home and now in both hind hooves she has cracks, one in each hoof.
The cracks are thin and you probably wouldn't notice them if you weren't looking for them. She is not lame at all, and trots up sound as a pound.
Her front hooves aren't too bad, no cracks that I can see, but the front it kind of blunted off from wear, and they are chipped at the bottom, but again, she is not lame.
What should I do about this? Can she still be ridden? (In a soft surface arena)
Any advice at all would be appreciated, thank you x
