    That's been used quite often, but it needs a little more work than that to stop the crack from going all the way to the coronary band. The bottom of the hoof needs to be stabilized as well, or the constant expansion and contraction will make the crack go further up.  There are also equine products made specifically for that purpose.  Find a really good farrier and explain the problem to them.  If you have a farrier school fairly close to you, that is an option as well.  If you can stabilize the crack and eliminate the source of the problem, you should have pretty good luck fixing it.  It may take a year for it to grow out, depending on how far up the crack goes.
