I've had my new OTTB for about 10 days. I don't have much experience in the hoof department so I'm looking for answers. I've heard about shedding frogs and it looks like my horse might have that happening to his left front hoof. It's come about half way off and looks healthy underneath. But I'm just not 100% sure that's what it is.
Also, I've ridden my horse about 6-7 times and I noticed yesterday there are some chips on the front of the rear hooves. He only has front shoes, none on the back. My guess is he is clipping his front hooves when we are trotting/cantering. What is the best remedy for this?
