Thank you all for your replies, but I am going to give you guys a few more details that I think didn't quite get through on my 1st post.
First off he did have shoes on over the summer, but that is the only time he gets shoes on. I am trying to work for no shoes at all and that is why I switched to a Barefoot trimmer now so hopefully by summer he can go without. He had not had shoes on for 7 weeks before the New Barefoot trimmer came out and he had been completely fine before the trim last week even when the ground had gotten really wet and muddy and then over night it froze and the ground was all ripped up and practically ankle breaking it had so many rutts in it. This was while he was barefoot after my 1st ferrier had taken his shoes off so he was a little tippy toeing out in the pasture at that time but in the arena he was fine.
Now we have snow, so no ground problems, and after the new Barefoot ferrier has trimmed him a week has passed and he is very sore on the hard spot in the indoor arena.
I am going to let him take it easy, I was thinking maybe an abcess, so I will of course give him time to get use to the new trim since I do know that he has never actaully had a Barefoot trimmer trim before.
I love everything I have read about barefoot trims and think it is the best way to go, I am just very nervous since this is such a new thing for both me and my horse and now he is unrideable. I want to get some boots because I think that they are much better then shoeing.
I hope this makes sence, if not ask questions and I will answer them the best I can. I am going out to the barn tonight to see how he is doing today.
Thanks all and I will stick with it and see how he goes, hopefully he will be fine soon!
