Angry Darn Horse, will a shoe help or what other options?

Ben was due to go out to the trainer this weekend, after waiting for a vacancy, and guess what, he came up lame.

I have been waiting for the farrier to come out, so his feet are overgrown, but he had a huge split appear in his near hind. He has dead lame on it and the chunk was flapping around, so I clipped it back and he is going a little better today.

Here is the hoof

And here he is moving

What do you think, any ideas?

I'm not sure if it's just inexperience but I don't see any impede in his movement..

Cool, maybe it's just me then, he was definitely off before I trimmed him, maybe I'm still seeing it

Theres no visible lameness so he's probs ok :) I wouldn't want to put any nails into the hoof with shoeing incase it weakens the wall further. I'd just lay off working on hard ground or doing high impaction stuff, and let it harden and eventually grow out
