Its been a mad week and there is lots to tell you about but for the moment let's just focus on Aleska's update. She arrived at the beginning of June so has been here 8 weeks now.
Here are her feet the day she arrived. Compare with the lower photo today - a very different hairline, shorter toe and much stronger palmar hoof. The nail-holes have also grown down but the most important thing is the much tighter angle of new growth and the more balanced hairline.
This is a much more business-like hoof - and in fact Aleska seems to be relishing her new-found ability to stomp about and in her work so far is going from strength to strength.
Here is her RF - already a much better and more functional foot today (below) than it was on the day she arrived (above).
The most interesting thing for me is that her sole is becoming steadily more symmetrical and essentially her frog is resuming a critical role. That's the way to build a stronger palmar hoof.
Here is her LF - again a big change in hairlines already, a much better angle of growth and a stronger palmar hoof.
You wouldn't have said that her LF was terrible when she arrived...
But look how much better it is now- and look at how the orientation of her limb has changed. More on Aleska, including footage, soon...
