New arrivals - Jigsaw

We have had several new horses arrive over the weekend. It will take me a few days to get all of their photos up so I am posting them strictly in order.
First up is Jigsaw, a hunter, who has been diagnosed on MRI with navicular bone damage on both front feet and a DDFT injury on his left (worse) foot. 
He has had remedial farriery and box rest, along with medication of the navicular bursa, and has been out of shoes for a few months.
There is actually a lot to like in his feet, although he is clearly weak and under-run in the palmar hoof.
However he has progressed from landing toe first to landing flat, which is already a step in the right direction, so I am hopeful that it will not be long before he has a better landing and a stronger foot.
