Is it bad to have a horse's hooves trimmed while they are lame (with a stone bruise or abscess)??

That would depend on how lame, why they are lame and who is doing the trimming.

He is a little lame, a bit sore when walking and a lot sore when trotting..we are almost absolutely sure it is a stone bruise and our farrier (that has been doing our horses hooves the whole time)

If the horse is too sore to pick up the opposite foot & you can't make him comfortable enough, with boots, styrofoam pad, whatever, then it may be best to wait a week or 2. Otherwise, shouldn't be a prob.
