Not sure if it's a bit of laminitis. But how can your farrier say it's not navicular without an xray? (actually several).

Think if it was laminitis it would. Be both fronts one might be worse then the other but think both would be effected. My gelding is laminatic and both fronts are affected right fronts worse then left.

Could be something else wrong maybe an abcess?

He is a highly recommended farrier who works side by side with our vet and it is uncommon for navicular to be on only one foot

Do you have better pictures? The upper hoof wall is nothing to worry about, it's actually good. It's new hoof growth that is growing down. There's a difference because of the laminae attaching the hoof wall to the internal structures of the foot. Flaring and such can pull the laminae away from the hoof wall, like pulling velcro apart. The new hoof growth is "new velcro." It's tighter and has not yet pulled away from the hoof wall which it should not do in the first place. The new hoof growth will grow down in the next few months and replace the old hoof growth as it's trimmed away.

As to why he is lame, I wouldn't know. X-rays would be your best bet on finding the culprit.

Unfortunately xrays don't always show what is going on.
