My 9 year old gelding is lame on his back hoofs was fine yesterday now lame today.We got alot of rain saturday and last night it froze hard so corral is now frozen mud and lumpy.
He has shoes on all four feet fronts have pads and shoes backs are just shoes. Had a lot of issues with stone bruising so that's the reason for pads on the fronts.
Doesnt have heat in his hoofs legs arent stocked up but he's about a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10. Have a call into the farrier waiting for a call back. Last time he was riden was november 2nd. Deer hunting started on the 3rd and goes for 3 weeks.
So can't be work related has no cuts or swelling I can find the horse he's with is fine. Anyone else having problems since the ground has frozen up?
Thanks for any and all help.
