Solomon has been here 3 weeks, and now has his hooves firmly under the table :-) He has decided that he runs Rockley when Felix isn't around, and has wormed his way into the affections of even Bailey and Angel.
He arrived in bar shoes and with a very weak caudal hoof...
...but is such a no-nonsense little horse that he almost immediately set about growing better hooves. The video footage above also shows a small but clear improvement in landing, particularly in his RF and LH.
Solomon started working in hand a week or so ago, and although the surfaces and the amount of work he can do is limited, he is only improving as he works and should go from strength to strength. Previously, any work made him lamer so his hooves are already healthier than they were.
He is enormous fun to have around, and there will be lots more about him soon :-)
