hello sir. are these hooves appearing horrible?

Answer
Hello Rohit...
As I mentioned before, they look like they are ready to be reset or re-shod.
They look dry, but I come from West-central Texas, where we are always dry
and behind on rainfall !!
The Rt Front looks like the lateral/outside heel Isn't long enough & covering the heel ???!!
Other than that, I would reset or re-shoe the horse & he should be fine.

Best to You !!!
