Cool, all sounds right. Thank you all for your help! It kind looks like its peeling off now. Im having a vet come and do a general health check up soon anyway but I think you guys right about it not being anything bad. Thanks =)

If anyone has encountered this or knows what it is please do tell, I'm not sure what I should do
Hoof worms.

No such thing as hoof worms

My horses hooves look exactly like that when it has rained for a long period. Or when I hose him off too frequently. He's never had soundness issues from it either. When everything dries up, they pretty much go back to normal looking. I guess it COULD be from some sort of fungus..but I highly doubt it since it isn't causing him any discomfort.

Another vote for this.
