When I first got him I had him seen by both the farrier and vet they both said it was because he had never been on gravel before. I will bring this up to my vet though and see about having x-rays. The gravel I have in the field is river gravel so its smooth but I will check just to be sure! Something I got to thinking about while out with them tonight is his feet seem really small for his size. He has grown but his feet hasn't? Could this also be causing problems?

Is he halter bred? Halter bred horses have, unfortunately, been bred no often have very small hooves which can lead to lameness, however I don't think it would specifically cause hi to be tender footed on gravel. Can you post pics of him and his hooves?

Not sure on the breeding as he was sold as a grade quarter horse parents unknow. I'm unable to post any pictures sadly as my computer has stopped working. I can try to get on at the library this weekend and see if I can up load any. What kind of photos would be best?

I have had good luck using Jim Rickens. It toughens up the soles very well. A lot of horse racing trainers use it around here.

Take hoof photos like the attachment shows (diagram courtesy of Patty) with camera resting on the ground. Also a general conformation photo from the side with horse standing fairly square on level ground.

Oops... It didn't post all of the diagrams. See post 5 here on how to take hoof pictures: https://www.horseforum.com/hoof-care/...8/#post6107306
