Actually he has been as sound as anything since I got him (in March). Has had his feet trimmed once and the farrier noticed nothing wrong. But I'm going to have her out again ASAP to look at this and advise me on it. After looking at it again today it doesn't seem like a huge emergency- I just panicked in the night and had all sorts of horrible images running through my mind. Tomorrow I am burning that pile of branches and trees, though- lesson learned!

Here is a picture of the damage, taken Saturday morning. He is not holding the foot up as it may appear- I had just picked it up to inspect it and he was being lazy about putting it back down. I have the farrier coming on Thursday, but it is looking much better already. I think most of the damage was to the periople which made it look much uglier than it was. It sure gave me a scare though.

What it appears to be with your horse's hoof is what is from the "old-timers dictionary" called a "quittor". Meaning an abcess blew before it got to the coronet band. I had a horse that had a quittor and it caused no problem at all for my horse.

You may want to google "quittor".

Thanks, I've googled it and I still think he just tore it while he was crashing through the trees. I will ask my farrier if there is any cause for concern but considering how much it has already healed and the fact that he's sound I'm pretty confident that there is no lasting damage. He did put a little gouge in the wall of his hoof but it is near the heel so should grow out quickly, I think. Thanks everyone for the input- I like this group for that!
