My horse has chipped up fronts I assume from the dry weather and stomping of flys. They are worse than I have ever seen them. His left front has developed a crack about an inch long. I have looked on some other posts and now realize it could be from bad trim or nutritional deficiences,
Farrier comes tomorrow and I was planning on him putting shoes on his fronts only if it would help heal the crack. Good or bad idea? He does have hoof boots but because of the flair his left front has it doesn't fit. Later tonight I could post pix if you think it would help. Basically just want to know if shoes might stop the crack from growing. Thank you!
