Mismatched feet - the arrival of Dallas

These feet belong to Dallas who also arrived at the weekend. She is a young horse but has developed mismatched feet most likely through loading them unevenly over a period of months.
This is her lamer foot which you can see is more upright and clubby. She is landing toe first on both feet and her frogs in particular are under-developed.

By contrast her left foot, which she is more willing to load, looks stronger. Her landing isn't great on this foot either, however, so we have plenty to do.
 More on Dallas as she hopefully makes progress during the next few weeks.
