If you’ve ever seen a deer with partially white hooves you’ve probably wondered what caused this.

White hooves can be caused by a past injury (but that’s usually limited to one foot) or being piebald. However, this deer showed no other piebald characteristics. Therefore, this could have been caused by a healing from EHD or foundering.
When we posted this example of a deer with white hooves on FaceBook many of our followers shared their own images of deer with abnormal hooves or dew claws. See those photos at this LINK.
