I had Hanks shoes pulled 9 days ago. He has been fine, a little ouchy on rocks, but otherwise ok. Guess I should mention he has had shoes most of his life. I don't ride often and when I do we don't ride hard so I thought that I would pull his shoes and see how he did.
I went out day before yesterday and noticed he was holding his right back up and limping a little. It had rained and was muddy so I picked out his hooves to get any rocks or what not out.
Yesterday I notice his feltlock is slightly swollen...really hard to see but I felt it and it isn't hot or anything like that.
Is this because I pulled his shoes?
