Does anyone know what this may be, I'm trying to explain it best I can...
Best guess without pictures.... you're talking about the bars. The bars are part of the hoof wall located at the bottom of the foot and growing generally parallel to the frog. When overgrown, they can present that appearance of "sticking out". Generally ragged looking and will eventually fold/break over, laying against the sole on each side of the collateral clefts.
Simple and quick to clean up during a trim. Post some photos, marking the area of concern for better feedback.
