My mare's frog is pealing and its nothing new to me at all, but its bugging me now to know if I can just pull it off or should I leave it be? I hate seeing and and having to work around it when picking her hooves because I don't want to pull it off with the pick incase it hurts her.
Depending on the size of it and if it's just hanging there, you can cut it off. If it's still attached by a large section - leave it alone for the farrier. I wouldn't pull it though - might take off to much.
Sounds like she is just shedding it. This is normal. If its a big chunk, I would try and leave it as long as you can. You can try and nip it off or some of it, if its interfering with cleaning her feet but its not healthy to trim the frog come trim time, just because they need that to pump circulation. Clean it up sure, but not actually trim it like most farriers do...
Sounds like normal shedding to me as well.
You can just cut the piece that is "flapping" or coming off. It won't harm her.
Just snip it w some scissors, just above where it is still attached, and it will be fine.
It's just shedding, I pull the hangers off Ricci's feet. If I can't get it to come loose, it's obviously not ready, but most of the time, they pull off easy as pie. I'm weird, and I care about how good my horse looks, even if it is just the bottom of her feet, haha!
