Could be a physical manifestation of changes in his diet over time. Pictures?

Could mean imbalance, could mean laminitis, could mean little really, depending exactly on what they're like. More info on diet, hoof care, management etc will help when you post pics.

Ditto all the above, including pictures; there is a difference in looks between laminitis and founder rings vs rings caused from diet change, etc

I've seen hoof rings from a sickness and the horse had to be on antibiotics.

Also if my pasture goes thru a huge change due to too little or too much rain, I will see hoof rings on everyone.

I have a few of my critters just like Skys picture. This year has been weird with early heat then cold then heat etc. Their feed has been the same, and no illness. Their feet are healthy with no signs of laminitis.

Isn't it frustrating? :( And slightly unnerving. I hope everyone figures out what is causing it and hopefully it's nothing serious.

I have been told that if they are like bumpy lines running horizontal across the hoof, they show different injueries or changes over the years.If that makes sense? Could also mean sunken soles etc..
