He is two weeks out from trimming, he looked sore before trimming, and he had got long, so had quite a lot taken off. He looks sound walking now he is turned out, but was hard to tell in the dry lot. Need to do some more investigation for sure

No heat in his feet, and vaccinations not done yet this spring

I want to say that he's moving sore all around, but definitely more up front. I saw a few definite "ouch" steps on the right front, tracking left.

A bit of a mystery then. I think a pre-emptive strike is in order just to be safe in the event it's the onset of a laminitis attack - diet change as in less hay, no grain, access to lots of water and perhaps even cold soaking the feet daily for the next little while.

sore in the front..and maybe the hind?? He is short striding, but if he was teed off that could be part of it. Is he arthritic ? Ring bone etc ? Any puffy joints?
Was he trimmed to short ? Have to much sole ? Does he have abcesses ?

No puffy joints, his legs are clean, hard and cool.

Evidence of blown abscess's from last year.

Feet are hard and soles look good, some evidence of previous laminitis with wide white line.

Has been wintered on rough hay, whole oats, beet, hoffmans minerals. Over the last few weeks I've been starting to build in more food trying to put a little more weight on, so have added slowly alfalfa pellets, and an 18% performance feed.

The grass is only now starting to grow,and they are out for 5 hours a day on it, zero chance of grass overload.

I would ditch the oats. Alfalfa does not have a high sugar compared to grass.
Are any of his feet dished? I would suggest a Vet check. THere are just soo many things this could be.

Sore all over, noticeable head bob on the left front.

Time for a vet. Impossible to say whether it's something systemic (someone mentioned recent vaccination, which is a good thought) or several different mechanical issues. Not a happy horse.

Bute can go a long way to help halt laminitis. Given early it helps stop inflamation and the build up of heat in the hoof.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.
