Farrier is supposed to be out today to reshod my horse, guys schedule is supposedly so busy he had to postpone this past weekend and he is coming today so well see. Question is how long does it usually take for a horse who has got sore like this to recover after being reshod?

IME, not long. In fact, when I first tried to transition my guy to no shoes (not saying barefoot since I HATED the barefoot trimmer I tried), we pulled the shoes and horse was ouchy for 2 weeks. I finally saw no improvement and just put the shoes back on. He was fine once they were on. I rode him that day. I finally did transition him, but only by letting the foot grow untl the shoe was nearly falling off. Then we pulled it, cleaned up the edges so they wouldn't chip, and he has been without shoes ever since.(other than when I put his sliders on). About 18 months now.

I've seen a new horse that we had the shoes removed from (we never kept shod horses) take about a year before we got the feet completely right. It had been in shoes forever and so when you take into account that suddenly the feet were able to expand on impact and the extra blood flow the poor thing had it rough for awhile. And then there was the contracted heels, two cracks from nail holes, etc....
Turned out nicely though. Was a great horse, just took awhile to get the feet right. Normally doesn't take that long. Especially if they've spent a lot of time unshod already.
My first QH had feet like rocks, but that was probably from walking and much later riding on so much pavement from the time she was 7 months.

I pulled the shoes on a horse that had been shod for two years, and he was fine immediately there after. Second trimming noted that there was no sole to exfoliate and that was about the only difference. It depends on the horse.

Some can go barefoot and some cannot.

Whenever my mare was shod over the summer she was ouchy if I rode the same day her shoes were pulled which is understandable. She was fine on grass. I often wouldn't get a chance to ride for another week but her feet were fine. I think back to my teen years walking all over the beach and roads barefoot, ouchy to begin with but quickly toughened up. By summers end we could walk on cinders.

I am looking for another farrier at the moment. I had a friend I know who shows in reining suggest using his farrier, said the guy did a great job waiting on my friend to send me his number and maybe this guy can actually make it out. So annoying. This is why I have stated before I wish I could shoe my own horses, I would have already fixed the prob if I had the ability to. I do someday hope to be able to do it.
