Question- White ring on horse's hoof???

After a day of rain I noticed my horse who lives outdoors had a whitish, blue ring around the top of her hoof. It isn't sensative but feels kind of soft. I read somewhere that it is her periople, what can I do to get rid of it?

Get rid of it?! The horse needs it's periople. That's just what happens when they get sodden. All the horses down here look like that after standing around in knee deep snow in the winters. Just leave it, as it dries it'll go away on its own.

So, it'll just go away on it's own, right? Thanks.

It doesn't go away, it is just not noticeable when it's dry. Absolutely nothing to worry about, perfectly normal.

This is the horse's version of waterlogging... like the way your fingertips get when you swim for a long time... or do too many dishes by hand!
