Sore feet after shoe removal
Hello all, hoping for some expertise on my sweet little QH welsh. I got him about a week ago and he had some very overgrown feet with shoes on. The previous owner said that was his first pair of shoes ever. Vet records showed no sign of lameness or foundering, but since he’s been at my boarding facility he has been so sore. I had my ferrier take the shoes off and they weren’t in the best shape underneath, quite crumbly. He left them for a week to harden and then trimmed 2 dats ago. Poor boy has been exceptionally sore since. One of the trainers at the facility said she thinks he is arthritic but the vet has said he never showed signs of this before. Could he just be sore from the shoe removal and new, harder ground, environment ? His ferrier said his soles are solid but walls are thin and may need sometime to grow out. Thoughts ?
