Do you feel any heat in that hoof compared to the other?
Once the front shoes were removed did he every go sound or was he ouchie from day one?
Was he fine one day and off the next or was it a gradual soreness?
Does he limp more on a sharp turn or smaller circle then in a straight line?
If you look at the back of the front hoofs, do they look the same? Is one any different than the other?
Have you taken his temperature?
What breed is the horse?
That's all my questions for now...
He is a quarter horse as far as I knoe. No papers. He was sound for a few weeks after we took his shoes off and he got over the initial soreness. His front legs look and feel exactly the same. I didn't feel any heat in his hoof but I will check again when I get home. I have only tried him in the round pen and as soon as he starts to limp I get off. I didn't take his temp but I will. I am going to get boots to ride him in and see if that helps. My neighbor has a pair and is letting me borrow them to try them before I buy a pair. I am going to yave the vet out in a week or 2 but until then?????? Thanks for everyones replies :) Posted via Mobile Device
