Zac's feet - new arrival number 3

These feet belong to Zac, a Hanoverian who is our third new arrival from the weekend who came out of shoes in December.
He has been diagnosed with navicular bone damage and related soft tissue damage in both front feet, worse on the right foot.
His feet are boxy and are not properly supporting his limb  at the moment with the right leg again being the worst. 
Although his feet are fairly symmetrical at the moment I would not be surprised if he developed an asymmetric hoof capsule as his new hooves grow in.
For now he is keeping himself busy meeting the other new horses which is proving quite exciting for him!
