Ask farrier to put a “notch” just above the crack to keep it from continuing to move upward. Also ask for a “mustang roll” on the bottom edge of the hoof. This will relieve the stress on the entire outside hoof wall and reduces the chances of chips and cracks. The foot definitely does NOT look like it needs conditioners to moisturize it.
