    An injury at the coronet band is serious, as it can lead to hoof deformities. I have a similar condition myself, where horses have stepped on my toes, resulting in deformed toenails. My toes look funny. It's more serious for the horse, who lives most of his life standing on those hooves. If you've not already spoken to your veterinarian you are neglecting some very necessary care.

    If you believe that your horse has an infected wound, then it is appropriate to call your equine veterinarian out to examine your horse and treat the wound.
