When I showed my paint gelding, I would use black because he had black feet. I was told it was more of a breed thing to use black (I did not do breed shows with him), but I felt like it gave the illusion of him looking a little more correct in front. Normally I use oil and not polish, but I think the black was the best choice for him.

I showed him in hunter in hand, color, and show grooming:

And his feet normally (he has black ermine spots, one of his front feet has a stripe)

And a most recent picture of him...he is almost 25 now.

Permanent cracks in his hooves?

I would go with black but i would get those cracks taken care of before worrying about painting his feet up all pretty.

The cracks are bcus he was in a fence accident when he was a foal and the people never got them taken care of. When i bought him i had him checked and yes they are perment. He is perfectly sound i doesnt affect him at all.
