More DDFT damage - Rose's feet

These are Rose's feet and, like the other new arrivals she has come already out of shoes.
She has had 2 diagnoses of DDFT damage, one of which was repaired by surgery, but the more recent tear has not responded to medication, rest or remedial farriery so she has come here.
Like some of the other new arrivals, she has under-run heels but a decent frog which is dying to work harder.
Interestingly, her hoof pastern axis isn't bad at all but with her long toes and under-run heels its not surprising she is landing toe first.
She also has a slight medio-lateral imbalance which is leading her to land on the lateral edge of her right foot; her left foot is the more balanced and loads evenly.
