I would suggest a chiropractor. Seriously. It might not have anything to do with his foot or feet themselves...could be a further issue.

I'm starting to think that too.... I've confined him to keep him quiet for 2 weeks and if he's not good I'm going to our chiropractor. We've been down that road before....Gelding sore in the hind, 800 dollars for vetting and hock injections do no good, a year later we finally try chiropratic and within two weeks he's winning his pleasure classes again. We won't wait that long this time. Lol

....could be an abscess that hasn't come out yet...

My horses ALWAYS have thrush. My farrier says it's because of where we live, there is high bacteria in the soil because we are so close to the river... I used to spray a clorox mixture on it but I found this tube stuff... I'll have to go home and look what it's called... thrush magic maybe? It works really well for me....
