Dolly's update

Dolly's photos should have been posted last week but I was hoping for better weather and a better landing which unfortunately are not yet apparent. 
She does have a little more development in the back of her foot but she has not really made the progress that the other rehab horses have made over the past 8 weeks. 
Her frogs and heels are a little less contracted but it has not been enough to allow her to land consistently heel first, though she does manage an occasional heel first landing especially downhill. 

As you can see, she is growing her hoof capsule in at a better angle which is nice to see but we really need that to translate into better movement. 

Again, some improvement in her heels and frog but a foot which is still too weak for a solid heel first landing.

What do you do then in these circs Nic? Just keep going and give it more time or tweak the regime?

She needed more time but we had to be careful with surfaces as there were lots which would have been counter-productive.
