Thats a growth line from a coronet injury. A scar. These never go away. The OPs is from an abscess from what i can see and will grow out if fungal issues are kept from taking oppourtunistic hold. If dirt is causibg a problem, the hole can be cleaned and.filled with sometibg like equipak cs to.keep crap out. It should be grown out and healed up. Those turn into white line disease pretty easily meaning if you dont deal.with. it, you may have a big farrier issue and.possibly a sore horse or worse, lame, down the road anyway. Holes need to be dealt with if they are not growing out witb proper trimming. That floor is pretty dirty and poopy from what we.can.see so just asking for infection if it isnt there already. It would be good to clean it really well and try to keep poop and mud byildup from getting too bad till you get these feet in better shape.
