I was checking my horse's feet today and I noticed a black streak on the sole of his left front hoof, which happens to be a club foot:
(sorry about the snow, I had a hoof in one hand and my phone in the other :oops:)



Not sure if you need a couple conformation shots, but here are a few just in case:


I can hop out and take any more that are needed (if needed:))

I don't think it's a bruise since it's not red-purple, and there's no hole for an abscess. Should I be worried?

I would think it was a bruise? But I'm no expert. I don't know much about feet

Thanks loosie, glad to know it's nothing to worry about. Just kind of alarming when you pick the hoof up and there's a spot you've never seen before

I was thinking pigment, too. If it wasn't there before, maybe it is just a bruise. Horses are really good at getting bruises on their feet, especially in the winter. They knock their feet on frozen uneven ground all the time.
