I can't say it isn't completely true. I know if you were to, say, start your horse on a hoof supplement, you will see a line where the new hoof is growing in. It takes about a year for the hoof to grow all the way out. When an abscess blows out, it leaves a horizontal line, yes? And that line will continue to move downward as the hoof grows, but will eventually disappear. So I would think you can only keep track of a hoof injury for the year it takes for it grow.
