    His hooves may be a bit tender at first while the blood flows through, (sort of like when we get pins and needles after sitting awkwardly till the blood gets through again.
    That will comes right fairly quickly - if you are talking tender to ride - yes he will be and that can take a couple of months as the hooves harden. You can get him hoof boots (Ezy Boots or similar) so that you can ride if you need to while this heals.
    Still much better than having the shoes on. What happens with shoes is that the shoes stop the hooves ability to expand - a metal bar has no give.
    Do please make sure that you get a proper barefoot trimmer - not just a farrier who trims as if he is going to fit a set of shoes Totally different trim needed to go barefoot
    This is a great site about barefoot...

    I think he might always have a bump there, most injuries on the cannon bone leave a bump. I love Walter even with his bump.

    Oxer, about the no shoes thing. I think you know that I have always been a proponent of using shoes on high performance horses as they do have many benefits. But after some recent revelations with my FEI horse, we did pull the shoes. It's been 6 months now and he is able to walk comfortably on gravel. I do have to be more careful in his management, but the overall change is worth it. As well if it doesn't work out, you can always shoe him again. If he is on stall rest, now is the perfect time to pull the shoes as many horses need stall rest after pulling shoes.
    And about the farrier versus barefoot trimmer thing, stick with your farrier. A well educated farrier will 95% of the time do a better job than any barefoot yahoo, and if you need to look into other options, your farrier is your best resource. Mine has 3-5 options lined up should we need to shoe or "shoe" my horse. Everything from fill to plastic shoes to strengthening epoxy. And he gave me a great recommendation and fit on my hoof boots.

    So, think about the barefoot thing and talk to your vet and farrier. Good luck healing his injury!!

    He is looking amazing in those pictures.. Boo is not too far behind in his healing as well. I'll try to get a pic this evening for you.

    I know how amazing it feels to see all of the hard work paying off.
