Hopefully just a bad bruise. Have you felt along the foot top and bottom for any bones broken?
Soaking in warm Epsom salt water is a very good idea. And rest. Make sure he can't be out trying to keep up with everyone even if you have to keep him in a pen. When we're hurt rest is one of the best ways to heal.
And of course if you don't begin to see improvement in a few days then I'd advise taking him to a vet.
:welcome
