He is ten months old ---- my foundered 22 year old never had soles that looked like that.
You need to get the vet involved in those hooves "yesterday". Gelding is not going to be an option until whatever is causing those hoof issues is resolved. My knee jerk reaction is major founder from something but again ------ he is only ten months old-----
Also, is that left rear leg swollen of is still covered in a thick layer of winter hair? If you're in the northern hemisphere, he should be nearly or completely shed out by now.
Please get the vet out, quickly.
