Frog development

Thought these shots might be interesting, keeping the theme for the week(!). This is a horse who is here for rehab at the moment, the lower photo LF the day he arrived, the top photo same foot after less than 3 weeks.

He has weak frogs, of course, and no digital cushion to speak of, particularly on this foot, but frog stimulus is key to getting a healthier caudal hoof, and he is making a good effort to improve himself :-)

Good effort! :-)

He's trying hard :-)

No wonder that one was unsound! Those horrible little contracted heel bulbs stuck right out behind the shoe. Yuk.
