As many of you know, my horse has had lameness issues since Jan. Unfortunately, he still isn't 100% sound to me. I decided to try hind shoes to see if it would make him more comfortable behind. Well, my farrier came out and put the left shoe on and everything was fine. When the farrier was nailing in the two nails closer to the toe on the right hind, my horse kept trying to pull his leg away and rush down the aisle. He was fine with the other two nails being put in that are farther back. My farrier said that this can happen when they are sore somewhere.
What do you think? He has never reacted like this when he has had shoes put on and this was only 1 hoof.
