Trimming hoves yesterday, we noticed really dry, flaky, skin around just one hoof:

It didn't seem to be bothersome, we brushed it a bit and the skin (and hair) just kept flaking off.

Any ideas what this could be (and how or if we should treat it)?

It looks like foot scald, which is caused by the same bacteria as hoof rot. Its treatment is the same. A topical application of Koppertox or you can dip the foot in a footbath of zinc sulfate.
Thanks, Rex. I will begin treating as for hoof rot and see if it improves.
