I'm really worried about my pony's feet!
My pony has a black soul around his frog, and there is a smell but I think its just from the muck...might he have thrush??

It is possible but a bit hard to say without a pic to assess the form of the foot.

Thrush sounds pretty likely.

Does that hoof smell worse than the other hooves?

Is he lame? Can you pick the gunky stuff out? Any heat or swelling?

bubba13- He's not lame and there is no gunk, heat or swelling.

A photo would help - can you get one?
If not, can you call your farrier out?
