Firstly, 'ringbone' is calcification on/between the pastern bones. Therefore no, this is nothing at all like it & you usually can't see it - unless they're big lumps.
It's hard to tell much from those pics. In the first I thought it was probably periople - the external membrane that grows from the coronary over the top of the hoof, like the quick of your nails. You may be noticing it more because being waterlogged it's lighter. But in the second pic I'm not so sure - looks like the hoof wall could be peeling.
If you would like comments/opinions on your horse's feet, pics of clean feet, without snow/mud/grass in the way & from a variety of angles is helpful. Check out the link in my signature below for critique pic tips.
