Your avatar pic is the only one that shows anything much & even then not a lot. But it does appear it's the fetlock or such, not just a deformed hoof wall or such.

Here we go. One up close, and one because he is cute. Also, he really didn't want to square up. So....
Sorry for the quality.. phone cameras stink. On a side note has anyone tried out the new iphone 4s camera?

Balance the foot to the leg but don't try to change it.

Farrier comes out a week from today. Anybody have a good trick for getting the gunk off his hooves. I have scrubbed them. The "gunk" is from putting farriers fix on him and then letting him out. The dirt gets stuck to it and then gets gross. I tried to scrub with shampoo and a brush the other day but he wasn't having it. I just want them to look good and work well for him! Is there a limit to the amount of hoof conditioner such as farriers fix I can use? I mean I don't do it everyday, maybe twice a week. Curious.

Agree with BNT that from the look of those pix, it's a leg issue, not a foot prob to be changed.

As for hoof gunk, I wouldn't bother. The horse needs to be fed correctly & have well balanced nutrition, to *grow* healthier hooves. Putting stuff on the outside is no more effective than painting fingernails. The outer wall is already dead, so can't be made healthier. I don't know that particular one & why it may be so hard to come off, but I wouldn't be inclined to use detergents or anything to cut through it, as that will also take off the protective impervious layer on the hoof walls.

Ok thanks! Farriers fix is just an oil mostly, but then the dirt gets mixed with it and dries and is gross.

See, my mare looks a lot worse than that, and we're still helping her with her feet, they were so appalingly overgrown when I got her.

But she's pigeon toed from the shoulder down, so one minute she looks like its a complete right angle, thennext it looks completely straight ;D
