Red face My horses hooves.

I'm not completely sure if this is the right place to put this, but I was wondering if I could get a critique on my horses feet haha. I'm just kinda bored so I thought it would be cool to see what people have to say :).

My guy is a 7 year old TB, never raced. He is deffinately due for a trim, which may make the pictures worthless lol, but these are his feet 6 weeks out in the winter. It's alright if they can't be critiqued, just putting them out there lol. They aren't the best quality, (I took them with my cell phone lol, but ohh well) if they can't be critiqued, I'll wait and get new ones when he gets a trim, he was supposed to get one the other day, but our farriers truck was broken down, but I'm not really riding right now, so it's no biggy. Thanks!

P.S. He is usually shod, all fours, during the show season (h/j) if that helps, we pull them off in the winter because of snow building up, and he's prone to abscesses.

I tried putting the text of which hooves they are on the pictures, but for some reason it won't upload with it, so here they are in order:
Left front, Right front, Left hind, Right hind.
(His front legs are solid black, and he has white socks on both hind legs. Also, those white marks are shavings, ugh I tried lol. He does NOT have thrush, just to clarify. Crappy pictures -.- lol, sorry)

Hm. I've never seen any horse feet like these. His frogs look very deep into the rest of the sole.

They definatly look rough... probably better to get a critique after a trim

You'd be better off doing this after he's trimmed... easier to see... also, include "clean" shots from the side and front.
