Ice balls stuck to horses feet and lameness...

This just happened recently. I noticed it today. My horse had 2 inch snow "shoes" stuck on his hooves and once I removed them, he's still walking gingerly, like he's hurting. He's taking slow small steps like he is afraid to step down on his hooves. Does anyone know what I should do about this?

He probably bruised his soles. Keep him in if the ground outside is that hard. Consider buting him, and call your farrier for advice.
