Today I am pleased to say he is gradually improving in soundness and has been working well for the last few weeks.
Today his palmar hoof is wider an stronger. His foot is still under-run but the balance of the foot is steadily moving to a more supportive place.
From the lateral shots you can see how collapsed the palmar hoof had become. The stripe is a useful indicator of how the foot is growing and the dorso-palmar angle.
Today the stripe indicates a less collapsed foot and you can see from this angle (and from the improved hairline) that there is beginning to be better depth to the digital cushion. A shorter toe is another encouraging sign.
