    That kind of looks like a thrush infection that went really bad... like maybe turned into something much worse? But I'm not sure.

    I think you should call your farrier and vet ASAP. That doesn't look good, and almost looks intentional but it could just be the way the picture it showing up for me.

    I wouldn't soak just yet. Is he more comfortable with the bandage? If so, then he needs to grow frog, that's all. If he's lame the same with bandage, it could be a bruise or abscess. He could theoretically have found a piece of glass in the ground and sliced the frog off... I've seen that before, just not that deep and bloody.

    ^Definately^, and I'd be calling the farrier while the vet is on the way to boot! That looks bad, and by golly, if I were a farrier and had a possibly incompetent assistant (only an assumption), I'd want to know. Despite that, I'd get it checked immediately - so glad you discovered it, poor boy!

    **Loosie?!?! :)

    Guys, with the even-ness of the V-shape of the cut, I'd be my right arm that the farrier (or assistant) simply used a hoof knife to pare the frog away.

    Skip to 1:20 in this video and you'll see exactly what caused that part of it only whoever did it on the OP's horse took a lot more off.
