    Steep shouldered horses' feet can get like this. The Movement that the shoulder prohibits leads to only certain parts of the hoof to wear down. My Dollar's feet get long like this, but not quite that long.

    Need a good farrier is what that is called never have seen toes that long that were done even every eight weeks. Can't believe you ride him he could trip and fall with toes like that. That's called long toes under run heels = bad farrier work or lack of.

    Yes, it's called chronic laminitis/founder. This is commonly a metabolic/diet related problem, but there are other causes, including incompetent farriery &/or neglect. While this horse is on soft footing so it's hard to see, it appears that his feet are rather neat looking, suggesting that maybe he has been trimmed/shod recently... just if so, the farrier has no concept of a/p balance.

    Of course, with but one imperfect photo, can't say the above is his problem for sure, but I think it's a strong bet
