These are Ted's feet - the second Ted in our current cohort of rehab horses.
Like the other new horses, he has been out of shoes several months and his palmar hoof has apparently already improved.
Ted has had not 1 but 2 MRIs showing DDFT damage which has healed and flared up again over several years.
However there is a lot to like about his feet, although he has a medio-lateral imbalance on his RF which is causing him to land laterally at the moment. Unfortunately I can't add his footage just now as we are having issues with Vimeo but I will add it as soon as I can.
Nevertheless I think these are feet which will improve fairly rapidly - I hope I am proved right.
A diary of whats happening at Rockley, whether its news on rehab horses or on our own horses hunting and competing. All the horses are barefoot, and the blog includes updates on hoof rehabilitation and information about barefoot performance.
