Has anyone ever had this happen

Hi everyone
The good weather is here and I' ve been riding alot.
My Gus had been alil off so I had chiropractor adjust him.
Which was good since he probably neverhad it done and was really out but responded well.
He is barefoot.
It seems his right front foot is hitting hisleft front foot.
It isnt on his fur but his left hoof he has torn up that side of his hoof not bad but I can't believe I didnt notice it before.
Am going to still ride just duct tape that part and maybe the other one to. Farrier is coming out. Might do shoes but am hoping it straighten s itself out after the chiropractic visit.
Ihave had horses who wing but not that low. he is a mft.
Thank You in advance for taking the time to reply.

Was this happening before the chiropracter worked on him?

I though that it was from your description but I wasn't sure so I thought I would ask. It's probably a good idea that the chiropractor is coming back out then, especially if his movement has improved since the last time. Also, maybe there is something that your farrier might notice, something that he may be able to help out with trimming and balancing or shoeing. You could try protecting his hooves with bell boots, especially if he does get shoes and his movement hasn't improved much, cause the impact will do more damage with the shoes on.

Thanks for answering. I don't think it's to big of a deal.
His back was done day before yesterday. Don't plan on having her back out to soon. He really needed the correctionand responded well. I know boots could be the way to go (I've never used them)
Iworry if they don't fit well could cause other problems.
Good point about the shoes mighttake time to correct the hitting becoming worse in the mean time.

Am surprised I didn't notice this before. It's like something new.

The chiropracticor was the one to notice the hitting before the adjustment.
