Question
flat feet or concaved feet
flat feet or concaved  
hello sir, may i know  how to judge that this horse has normal concaved hoof or flat feet?

Answer
HELLO CAINE...THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTION...

The pic you included, is normal looking for your dry region.
The bars are collapsed because of dryness (which is normal), but actually the hoof
has "some" concavity to it.

Best to You !!
