ingured horse

recently we have been riding my new horse and he was being rode the other morning and threw a shoe, we noticed him start to limp later in the day thinking it was the shoe we pulled all the excess nails out thinking thats what was causing it, but he continued to limp the next day so we washed the hoof and found a small crack in the frog or right ubove it was this causing the limp if so what should we do?

It sounds to me like you will need to remove his shoes, and my suggestion would be to contact a vet and have him/her take a look. I hope it isn't anything serious, and he will be sound soon.

Thankyou :) after he is treated do you think it would be wise to put shoes back on or just keep him trimmed up?

He threw a shoe, and you left the nails in the hoof until he started limping?

I think you need to call your farrier out to have a look at him.

Hi 16mfutrell, I'm glad you took the initiative to help him. I'm not a fan of shoes and if boots or barefoot are a safe alternative they are my preferences. It depends on the health of the horse's feet, the type of riding and amount, the type of ground ridden on, etc.

Meanwhile I'd definitely leave shoes off until he's 100% sound again and then decide from there what alternatives you can look at. He may also be tender for awhile if he's been kept shod regularly, and the foot and rest of the horse take time to readjust, and a good farrier is priceless to help them in that direction. Again, thank you for taking initiative to care for him and about him.
