Hoof Question. Is this normal?
Okay so on Friday I had my farrier come out and take off my gelding's shoes since I don't ride him that much and I usually take them off for 6 weeks about twice a year. He trimmed them too. Well today I was working him in the round pen and I noticed he was acting like his hooves were tender. He wasn't, like, actually limping, but I could tell by the way he was moving that his hooves seemed sore or something. Is this normal? Do you think he's just adjusting to them being off or something?
