Ok thanks barefoothooves. Next time I'm out at the barn and have a camera with me I'll take some better pics for you. I'd love to know what you think as you seem like you know a lot. Thanks for all the help, it was greatly appreciated.

Oh, goodie! Something to do! Its still not the same as in person eval, but I never get tired of looking at hooves and anaylizing them in photos. I think it's an obsession. I'll look forward to seeing your pics when you get time.

I'm going to the barn and I'll take pics as long as I remember the camera. I can't wait to see what you think.

It looks great, you might want to consider moisterizing those hoofs though.

Kita's feet look like that if they get dry, a couple days of some moisterizer and they look great!

I went to the barn today but of course I had to forget my camera, so no pics today. Oh well I promise I'll remember my camera next time, hopefully.

FehrGroundRanch I'll try putting some moisturizer on his hooves. I too thought they looked quite dry. Do you think Rainmaker will do the trick? If not what do you think I should use?

I don't see a dryness problem. The rainmaker would make them appear prettier, but not really fix anything. Horses fair much better with dry hooves than overly wet ones.

And it's not that I have anything against Rainmaker, it's the first hoof moisturizer I'd recommend, it's just the type of product is used far more than necessary.

I would not say to use it all the time. When my horses feet get a little flaky I use moisturizer for a week to a week and half. No longer then that. And yes Rainmaker is a good brand!
