Callous is made from built up dead skin or hoof. Durasole crosslinks the proteins of this exfoliating sole causing it to stick around longer creating a callous. Put some on your fingertips. Youll see. Insta callous. I hate that feeling on my fingertips. It really works.

I'm going to get some pictures today, but what do you know it's raining again! I didn't know it was supposed to rain so I didn't put him in a stall and his hooves got a little muddy but he's in now and I'm going to go clean them off soon and get some pics of him standing on concrete.

...and front left...
Left looks much better than the right but I trotted him in the round pen yesterday and he was actually limping a little on the left.

Here are the back, which look pretty good. He never gets shoes on his hind. The last one's just because he's cute :)

Last Post I Swear!

On top of that I saw that he has a huge skinned place going all the way up his leg, thankfully it isn't deep. My poor horse is falling apart!

Your hoof pics look like my friend's hoof pics. She has now been told to keep the feet on dry ground. Then the farrier epoxied the shoes on with nails. I'm sure there are several methods to shoe your horse without nails.
The other thing I would do is take an object and tap around on those hooves. Listen for hollow sound. There are a few cracks there that look like they could be from white line disease.

Another one of my horses had white line disease and he had a big crack down the front like Buddy but he had space between the hoof wall and the sole where the white line had begun to rot away. Buddy doesn't have that- the bottom of his hooves look pretty healthy- aside from maybe some thrush because it's so wet around here. But yeah, dry ground seems to be the best thing. Another thing though- someone earlier said something about how putting him in a stall could be just as bad because of the ammonia in the urine. For most horses I don't think that would be a problem but for this horse that would almost be true. I dread putting him is a stall because he gets really anxious and in the morning there is so much urine and manure in there isn't one dry piece of shaving in there. Plus I doubt if he sleeps at all or ever settles down. That's why I'm trying to find other ways to strengthen his hooves. But I guess putting him up would be best.

Wow. Those are the worst feet I've ever seen. Poor poor poor Buddy!

Is he on a hoof supplement? SmartPak makes one called SmartHoof that my mare is on. She does well with it.

Looks like he has had multiple abscesses that have blown out. Ouch!

What does your farrier say?

Buddy is just a mess.

him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too."
