Sole sloughing off
Itís been really dry here for a couple of months. Then this weekend we got 3-4 inches of rain, and the pastures are still pretty damp. Teddyís sole appears to be sloughing off. When I picked his hooves today, his soles, which is usually gray and hard, were white and soft. I inadvertently dug the hoof pick into it and some came out (although it didnít seem to hurt him). Is this something that is expected? Also, could it make him a little ouchy? He was very reluctant to move out when I rode him today, although he didnít seem to be limping or anything.
