    Would corrective shoes help?

    Soooo...my gelding just got over some bad lameness issues, but still kinda limps a little bit. He never acts like it hurts him though! He short strides with that leg (left front) but will run and buck and play like nothing is wrong..something I noticed is that his hooves are growing at 2 different angles. The left is more steep and upright, while the right looks a bit more normal. He had been limping quite a while on the left, so the right took most of his weight and so it kinda changed shape a little bit. If you look at his feet, there is a clear difference. It looks like his left is taller than the right. When he walks, he looks like he walking with a stelleto on the left and barefoot on the right (ok that's a bit of an exageration but you get the point).
    So could a shoe with a wedge for the right hoof help? Here are some pictures:
