Thank you for the information. I wasn't sure if it was something that required vet care or not. Its not really deep, just a little chunk torn out by the hoof. I have the farrier comming out next tuesday for a trim, so will have her take a look at it then, or sooner if it becomes an issue. Unfortunately, its in a area that's impossible to keep clean, so all I can do is wash it up every day and hope that keeps it clean enough. Would it be a good idea to put a bellboot on that foot until it heals to help keep it clean and keep it from reopening? He is a clumsy boy and is known to get his feet tangled up when playing in the paddock.
