HIs back right hind hoof, which isn't shod, has a chunk (about 1 square inch) all bent up and cracked. I have been putting hoof stuff on his feet a couple times a week to make them stronger, but they still can't withstand the mud.
My question being. What should I do about it?? I didn't ride him, cause he seemed a little lame on that foot. Im pretty sure its bothering him. But, should I call the farrier? And how long will it take for the hoof to grow back? I'm thinking of putting him on a hoof supplement to help a little.
Thanks for your help.
