A quick update on Columbo, who arrived here a couple of weeks ago. He was lamest on his RF so this is the foot where we need to see the biggest changes. Its a tidier foot today (below) but the frog is still extremely contracted and there is old damage to the bars which you can now see more clearly.
Caudal shots on the day he arrived showed the extent of the problem, with the frog not only contracted but sheared and with nasty cracks at each side which extended into the heel bulbs.
Today the cracks have improved a lot and I hope that with increased stability in the foot the frog can now start to do its job. His heels are already lowering and broadening which is an encouraging sign.
