Trim Critique - Horse is Lame

Good Morning everyone I posted another thread a couple days ago about why people decided to learn how to trim their own horses, and well, this might be the reason I begin trimming my own also. My horse got trimmed two days ago now, after being about a week and a half overdue for a trim. Today he avoided being caught in the pasture, which is very atypical for him, and as he trotted around, I noticed some gimpyness. Once I got him caught, I brought him into the round pen and noticed that he appeared to be sore in the front until I asked for a canter... To which he did three awful strides and appeared to pretty much be begging to slow down. So, my horse that hasn't taken a lame step in 10 years is now lame, until his hooves grow out a bit.

SO, I tried my best to get some decent shots of his hooves. I know I missed some angles, but I couldn't open up the guide on my phone as there is no service at my barn. I can get more pictures Sunday if that will help.

Kind of hard to tell by the angles but looks like farrier got into the frog pretty good on the fronts which may explain why he's so ouchy. Sometimes Dually will be a little ouchy day of or day after a farrier visit, but never on the lame side of things. Also, his hoofs are growing like crazy right now since the grass is so green. Farrier was just out 3 weeks ago and they already need to be done again. He's on straight pasture grass right now, no grain and I'm gonna have to work him more often to keep his weight where it needs to be.

Not seeing anything, including anything to click on.

Riders ask "How?" Horsemen ask "Why?"

I will say no horse should ever be gimpy or sore or lame after a trim. Ever. That is my opinion anyway.

There are little boxes with nothing in them - four for each hoof. Click on the blank boxes and the hooves will open in Google:)

We did go through record drought conditions to record rain conditions last couple of months so I guess that has a lot to do with it also.
