    Default hoof crack

    my friend's Flord mare's hoof has a slight crack, a pin line, I dont' know what it is really called. It isn't all the way to the bottom or the top though.... if you know what I mean. What can she do to help it, or make it not get worse?
    Thanks

    Can you get some pictures of it?

    I'm not a farrier but I know that when I have had questions about my horse's feet, it has been really helpful to show pictures. That old saying is true when it comes to horses:

    "A picture is worth a thousand words".

    I also recommend the Horseshoes.com Forum which is set up for farriers to help each other and owners with issues. They also have a section dedicated to question about hoof cracks:
