    I recently purchased an alpine yearling and she seems to have a problem with her front hooves. Her back hooves are trimmed up fine and look much like my Nigerians but her front hooves split out in opposite directions. I've trimmed her hooves (it was a fight) but not sure how to correct this issue, if it is an issue, or if it can even be corrected.

    Here is a good look at all her hooves

    And from the front

    When you hold the hoof up and together, do they position correctly and not split out?
    If they do, is the inner area between the toes grown out? If so, they may need trimmed.
    Click on the pic below and look at the bottom left area, that is where I am mentioning.

    Does the hoof feel hot?
