Medio-lateral balance changing

I'm attaching clips of Bobby, whose owners came to visit him this weekend. There is a lot going on with Bobby's hooves and limbs, and so many changes are taking place that his whole body is affected, not just his footfall.

The clip shows him on the day he arrived and after 6 weeks. Because he had very thin soles when he arrived, we have had to start working him incredibly gradually, and it will be some time before he is in full work.

For now, his landing is beginning to improve, both in terms of heel first/toe first and his medio-lateral balance. For this horse, I think the latter may well prove to be the most important, but we will see...More to follow...
