Wjite line or something else??

my 23 yr old morgan gelding is having feet problems in the hind, see other threads, well now I see a very weird not normal looking front foot, this isn't tender or soft to the touch but the crease goes all the way around and is very deep.

The crease going all the way around and is deep, sounds like white line to me. How deep? Can you stick the end of a nail file in there and see? A farrier needs to get out and get that cleaned and fixed up before it gets too bad.

pretty deep I would say yes, my farrier just trimmed him Friday and never showed any concern for his hind foot or this front.

No you don't have white line disease. It does look like you have some retained sole and a foot that looks due for trimming, not just done.

Can you tell me why you say no? I don't know tons about hoof disease so my post was mostly a guess, but my farrier told me that recessing or cracking white line that you can stick something into is a big huge red flag for white line, and you want to get that fixed ASAP. The deep crease harbors nasties and bacteria, too. If OP can stick something INTO the white line pretty deep, what else would it be? That's certainly not normal or healthy.

It may not be WLD yet, but it could certainly turn into it. The white line is separating due to excess leverage from a too long toe. If the toe is allowed to grow too long, it has a tendency to separate like you see on your horse. A couple PROPER trims and preventative cleaning of the foot in the mean time should clear it up no problem.
