Lenny has been here for 4 weeks now. Although he has made progress he is not yet landing heel first, which is not particularly unusual but is a little frustrating.
I am including comparison shots from his arrival, 2 weeks and 4 weeks to give a clearer idea of what is happening to his feet.
You can see that his foot is shortening and becoming stronger at the back but its not yet quite enough to give him that good landing.
His heels and frog are developing and he is using his palmar hoof more but we aren't quite there yet and his foot is still unbalanced.
As with the other foot, this is an improving palmar hoof - less under-run and more stable but just not quite supportive enough at the moment.
Better heels, better frog...so near and yet not quite...
However when you look from this angle you can see how weak and unbalanced his feet were to start with and you can also see how many changes he is already making so perhaps we shouldn't be too surprised that he isn't quite there yet.
