Amazin,
Just looked back to where your original post was at 8:47 am, describing that this sort of circumstance could, in fact, occur "almost overnight", & now it says "delete"??? In that case, please disregard my question I suppose. :0/

If I was a barn owner, no horse on my premises would be allowed to go without proper care. I was be ashamed to have that horse neglected like that on my property.

Foal
I was already planning on moving my horse to another facility in a few weeks, after seeing this, I am glad that I am. I want my BO to be watching out for my horse's well being when I am not there, and seeing this has made me wonder whether or not he knows what he is doing.

That actually looks like the effects of selenium poison
To me it simply looks like very long hooves that are trying to break off . One GOOD trim will get them well on their way to being fixed. I have seen (and treated)several cases of selenium poisoning in horses and what happens typically is the hoof cracks perfectly horizontally up at the hairline. All 4 feet at once and the mane and tail hair falls out. .

This is typical selenium poisioning, almost grown out after about 8 months. And it was all 4 feet. :

Thanks Patty!
That was the information I had been hoping from from Amazin Caucasian, but he disappeared, along with his post! (?)

I had a feeling that the poison would LIKELY effect all hooves, as well as LIKELY other cellular tissues of fast growing potential; similar to chemotherapy and it's effect on all of the cells with relatively more rapid "turn over".

I got distracted this am and didn't wind up doing the research I'd planned on.
Your info is a great start. It's reassuring that the poisoning when it DOES OCCUR, can make it's way out of the horse fairly rapidly, and that it's negative effects can also relatively quickly be "regenerated".

Also good to hear that the unfortunate horse with the long hooves in the pic can possibly, just as Saddlebag experienced with her horse (in her story above), be nearly repaired following one good trim!! Hopeful for that horse...
Thanks again.

Interesting about the selenium poisoning.

The poor horse in the photo! Regardless of the cause, it is always mystifying and sad to see a neglected horse.

That is just sad...I am glad you brought it to their attention. Good for you for speaking up!! Others must have seen this too since they noticed the new foals. It looks like the hooves are way too long and in a mell of a hess!!
