Who knows without more info. While he *shouldn't* be sore/more sensitive after a trim, there are rare exceptions, but more to the point, it seems common for many farriers to trim in such a way as to make a horse sore. Eg. if they pare/rasp into the sole or frog. That's effectively thinning the 'armour plating' so there's less protection for the internal foot. Bruising & subsequent abscessing is the common effect from this. If you think it's likely, I'd keep him of rough/hard ground for now &/or use hoof boots.
