As others hun, I'd get the vet out if it's an ongoing thing, not clearing up on it's own in a day or two. 1st ned could easily have bruised his sole with a nasty sharp stone wedged in his foot but I would have thought it would be better by now. It may have caused some damage and punctured the sole. 2nd ned - as you say, could be just an odd moment in a slippery school. Is she sound on it now? If not, vet. If she is, I'd keep a diary and watch for re-occurrences. If they happen, vet.

Horse 1 - sounds very much like a stone bruise - poultice and you might just be lucky that he will be sound again

Horse 2 - dropping a back leg is a sign of back problems - probably needs the chiropractor
