Her feet are coming along very well. I am very happy with the new growth--it is coming in at just the right angle and her soles look terrific. She is such a good girl and patiently allows me to trim her while she's laying down--it's still a bit too painful for her to stand and let me trim her, though I can get her to give me her feet long enough to clean them out--a significant improvement from when she first got here!
I forgot to get before shots, but here is the one foot I hadn't trimmed yet. You can see her soles are in great shape, obvious healthy hoof wall growth and frog growth is good--I'd like to see it a bit wider but that will come as her heels spread--they were very contracted when she got here. They look tons better now, so the frogs will soon follow.
Empress taking it easy while I trim her up. She is definitely due for a grooming session today.
Here's Hope, very concerned about what I'm doing to her friend ...
Picture of the hoof from the side. You can see she still looks very long, but I trimmed her back as far as I could go without soring her. It will take time to get her angles corrected, but you can see the mustang roll from here, as well as the new growth.
Picture with new growth indicated. You can see how it is at a different angle from the rest of the foot, which is exactly what we need to achieve. We're on the right track! :)
