My horse was shod early Friday morning and this evening he is lame. Since May my horse was shod by my trainers farrier, who used a half round with little shoe "hanging" out the back as heel support. Yesterday since he was shod by our farrier, who we just started using back in April. Our farrier shod him in a plain keg type shoe with a lot of shoe hanging out of the back to act as heel support.
The reason he said he wanted to change his shoes is that his front right is a little dishy due to a farrier in the past. He said that the half round would have gotten it done but that this shoe would help get it done faster.
He only wears shoes in the front and has never had lameness issues. Both front feet are definitely sore especially at the trot. The right front more so then the left.
I feel no unusual heat or swelling. I've called the farrier he didn't think he should be sore as he said he left a lot of foot on him.
My horse has eaten well this evening and appears ok in his stall. The farrier said to call back in the morning with an update. Any thought or ideas as to what might be going on? Should I treat him with anything?
