The bruising was around the entire hoof were shoe was that was present all summer last summer. Yes he was tender footed didnt like going down hills either. He was also tender footed on hard ground and hated going over gravel,would try to dodge into the brush to avoid gravel.
Yes he could be trippy at times but more so just very tender footed. Shoes with pads and silicone between pad and sole he was fine. Could never just put shoes on he would be to tender footed and short strided.
He also hated having the shoes nailed on half way through summer had to traq him for shoeing. He was never a fan of having shoes nailed on though even as a 4 year old....hes now a 10 year old so been doing the shoeing thing for a while.
