Wedges - the movie - continued

We filmed Paul, the new rehab, again last week, and I've added the new footage on below.

The good news is that he is landing better already, which is an important improvement but, as often happens when you take shoes off a horse with problem feet, he became footy on hard surfaces a few days after his shoes came off.

The reasons behind that are the subject of a whole separate blog (!) but in practice it means that the increased stride length we saw initially out of shoes is unfortunately not evident on this clip.

It will come back, but it will take a while before he is as comfortable on the ridged concrete as he is on conformable surfaces.

Good to see Paulie making steps towards heel first after only 10 days! All very promising . . .
Amazing to see how quickly his feet are growing and nice to feel some heat returning! I didn't expect changes so soon, it's great :-)
