I'm posting this now even though I haven't got her feet pics yet - I will add those later today if I get the chance.
In the top shot she had been here about 10 days. She wasn't overtly unlevel on a circle but she was short-striding. She couldn't step through fully from behind because she couldn't fully extend in front - the consequence of not being able to land heel first - and this also made her tense in her neck and shoulders.
For the hoof nerds, her full footage is below and pics will follow as soon as I can!

Right - hoof pics at last...
The heel first landing she now has has led to improvements in her digital cushion.
A much tidier RF today, particularly the palmar hoof.
As with the LF a better digital cushion and more balanced hoof - the shorter and straighter hoof walls are a good indication of this.
