CessBee - Do you know your guy's base color though? He could have very well be a chestnut. ;)

wouldnt have a clue in the whole world haha. Would have loved to know more about him, I miss him so much now.
But I also do know that he was a broken coloured one before he greyed out becuase when I washed him I discovered patches of pink skin that where in irregular patterns, he looked so funny when he was all wet.

I ride a white horse that has 3 black hooves and one white one, I think it's weird since she doesn't have socks.

Erika - I am guessing that your horse is a grey and that under the grey she does have the one sock.

Yeah, I figured that...but all her legs are white. I thought it was neat.

That would be because of the grey. :) Grey wipe out all color, so you would not see where a sock, or really any white marking, is. Only was really is when the horse is wet.

Well, I know a horse that has cracked hooves. They were very funny looking and big his owner said it's called flat feet which meens don't ride your horse on hard ground. I don't know if your horse has but it's just an idea.

He is going into retirement now anyway :] So his hard riding days are over, he is looking for a nice trail/light riding home now.

His hooves crack because of his TB lines. TB's are notorious for weak hooves, he has almost no hoof wall and if he is shod he has to have special shoes with pads and clamps. But he does fine, no limping or lameness as long as he isn't ridden on gravel or super rocky surfaces.

Cessie is a TB, and to clean up her hooves, I put her on a biotin supplement and within a few months the crack was gone. :)

My tbs hooves are pretty much the same, only the stripes are alot darker :s he's chestnut & has no black or white markings on his legs at all so im not sure why his hooves are like it.
