    My mare dang near ripped her hoof off as a 3 YO and has some scar tissue at the coronet band and it's been looking the same for 20 years with no issue.

    I'm pretty impressed at how you've handled comments and are processing this information.

    I think 4.5 is a pretty stellar place to be! It doesn't sound like he really needs much more. If he eats the hay well, I'd be happier giving more hay than concentrates.
