I would call the vet asap. I hope it's nothing serious, but to be sure you may want someone out there sooner than later.

Thanks for mentioning this. I have had to soak many times and had no idea. I also agree with getting the horse seen quickly. There's so much more they can do earlier and better prognosis for recovery with lameness issues. Sometimes the lameness appears to be from one thing, and logically so, but ends up being something else. IMO better to be safe than sorry.

My first thought would be to take the shoe on the lame hoof off. Chances are there's something agggravting it more than just sand. And definetly call a vet and get a knew farrier!

Is there any heat in the joints above the hoof? Any swelling further up the leg? If the farrier was " rough" or got in a fight it is possible it isn't in the foot but maybe some of the soft tissue as well. With out knowing exactly what happened and not seeing te horse we can only speculate at best but I would start by pulling the shoe and see what you have. Could be a hot nail just putting pressure on the quick to a nail right in the quick to an abscess to like I said a soft tissue injury further up the leg. Just can't tell until you start working to eliminate the causes.

He was slamming his hooves and pulling his leg etc

Farrier we had come out said his shoe was loose so sand in his hoof is a possibility we are getting his shoes off soon

August is when he came out. A different farrier who came out said his shoe was lose she is going to change them soon.
