    Default Collapsed Heel? / Merry Christmas ... NOT

    What I had hoped to be an uneventful Christmas morning of extra carrots turned into this ...

    I have not had him long but I did have him trimmed about 10 days ago.

    Suggestions Please!!

    I'm not sure of what I am looking at. Can you get better photos? Maybe some of the farriers can figure it out.

    Sigh, the photos are pretty small. When I blow them up on my own computer they are much more detailed! Is there a better site to post them on that will allow enlarging?

    Small photos are hard to see, but it looks like an old blowout from an abscess or an old injury to the coronary band. Emphasis here is on "old"....

    Looks like a quarter crack, is it bleeding?

    I'm not a vet or a farrier, but I don't see anything alarming in these photos...

    I agree that the pics make it hard to see clearly but from what little I can see, I think old abscess as well.
