Rose update

Rose has only been with us for less than a month but has settled right in and has been remarkably cheerful about the fact that the weather at Rockley has been more like October than August - but then I suppose coming from Yorkshire she is a no-nonsense sort of girl :-)

She has nice-looking feet, and her main issue (in common with nearly every horse who comes to us) was that her caudal hoof problems had stopped her landing correctly - as you can see from the clip - and this over time had made her lame.

I will post some photos of her hooves this week as well but for now she is improving her landing slowly but surely, and I hope will soon land as nicely in front as she does behind!

The HD footage is here, in case the link below isn't too clear: http://www.vimeo.com/14540050
