    Is this normal?

    So I am not sure what is going on with my horses Rowdy's hoofs. I have never seen anything like it. I have already called the farrier and he will be out this weekend. My dad says it is because of all the rain we are getting and the grass being so thick that it's not getting a chance to dry out at the bottom. I have pulled him off the grass and put him in a dirt pen for now. I thought I would post some pictures to see if anyone has any thoughts as to what is going on. His back hoofs are worse than the front which is why there is more pictures of them. I hope the pictures I have posted work if not I can try to get some better ones. Thank You for any help!

    He's obviously quite overdue for a trim & quite imbalanced, but I presume you're just talking about the periople(skin) at the coronary border? That's just because his feet have been waterlogged.

    He is overdue for his trim I have had trouble finding a farrier thought I found one but he didn't do a good job last time and was very impatient with him. It was his first time with a farrier ever and I explained that to him. If it's just from being waterlogged should I worry about it turning into something else or will they be fine?

    It is from being waterlogged and yes it can become painful if the cracks get deep enough. I would get him in somewhere dry overnight if you can, then after they re dry thickly slather them with either Corona ointment or human baby A and D diaper ointment to waterproof them some.
