No sooner had Bailey W gone home than we had a new arrival, Isha, who came all the way from Cornwall - doesn't sound very far from Devon, but Cornwall is .
She is an 8 yr old KWPN mare who is very striking, with one blue eye and one brown. She arrived straight from a long period of box rest and already out of shoes but with a diagnosis of hoof pain which blocked to a palmar digital nerve block.
The box rest hasn't improved her, and her owner felt it was time to try something new, as she was convinced that Isha had been landing toe first for a while and that this had been contributing to the ongoing lameness. The footage we took when she arrived confirmed exactly that.
Her vet reported her as unilaterally lame, up to 4/10 on the RF, but Isha is also landing toe first on all but one hind, in this footage. She is markedly lamer on the RF, but had been given bute for the long trip to Rockley, so this footage doesn't give the whole picture.
