Vico's first blog post

I am combining 2 horses today, something I hardly ever do but just because I am running out of weekdays.

First up is Vico, our third arrival, who also came at the weekend.
He is a warmblood dressage horse who has had low level lameness for 2 years which has been treated with remedial farriery and cartrophen. He had his shoes removed about 6 weeks ago and has come to us to see if his lameness can be improved.
He has not had an MRI but x-rays showed navicular bone damage.
He doesn't have bad looking frogs although his feet are relatively flat. He is landing toe first, as would be expected with his diagnosis.
 This is his more under-run foot and it will be interesting to see how it changes.
His initial footage is below, as usual.
