I would make sure your horse is getting shod regularly. If he is barefoot it might be a little problem if you let it go for months and months and months since theres no shoe there to protect his foot. Before the horse i ride was shod, he feet were chipped a little cracked and EXTREMELY dry. all four of his hooves are white so I just put hoof dressing on all them to keep them healthy moist and not cracking and dry.
