No that is normal on all foals. There hooves harden and turn "normal"in just a few days. Quite often they even have "feathers" on the bottom side.

Hi Deena,
Like Cindy said, the feather slippers are normal. I think they are rather amazing in fact, and always marvel at them on the newborn foals. Congrats on your new filly! Post pics ASAP.

I have been told to treat the hooves just as you do the cord after birth, especially if they are still feathery. ?? Don't know what truth there is to it , but I do it. :-)

I immediately noticed the "feathers" as you all refer to them. I've never had a foal before.. I knew the hooves would be soft.. but, hadn't seen the spongy feathers. Being a part-time farrier.. I found it fasinating.
