a few questions from a worrier ( mostly about the lower legs)
hello folks! i have a few very minor questions, which, most likely, don't mean anything, but i'm the worrying type, and just incase, i thought i may aswell ask all at once instead of wasting space with multiple threads --
1. is there any problem with a horse ( hanovarian x trekener if thats of important) shedding his fetlock & leg hair, even during summer?
2. does the depth around the frog ( i think it's called collateral grove? ) have anything to do with overal hoof health? i've found that one of my horse's front hoof's grove is deeper than the other, does this indicate anything?
3. when i pick my horse's back hooves, he has a tendancy to lift his leg up as high as it can go, stretch it, and crack his fetlock joint, and then relax, should this be something i should let him do? does this have any affect on his leg's stability / health?
