The parts of a horses foot are the frog,hoof crown, and other parts. A horse's foot is called a HOOF. There is an old saying "no foot, no horse" meaningif a horse cannot use its hooves it is good for nothing: riding, farm work, ect. Hoof care is important because if a horse is lame or has a bad hooof it cannot be ridden. The hoof of a horse is divided into two parts: the outer insensitive parts and the inner, sensitive parts. A horse's hooves need to be trimmed every 4 to 6 weeks, its like cutting and filing your nails. The Outer Insensitive Parts of A Horse's Hoof include the outer wall, the sole, and the frog. The Inner Sensitive Parts of A Horse's Hoof include bones and cartilage. Outer wall = made of dense horn and is constantly growing Frog= triangular shaped structure in the center of hoof
