Bailey's 9 day hoof comparison

New note: email is now back on intermittently but is not reliable. If you sent anything to me at rockleyfarm since Sunday it has vanished into the ether...Please resend it to and I will get back to you as soon as I can :-)

Its very early days for Bailey, whose shoes had been off less than 2 weeks in the lower photo, but its an interesting comparison nonetheless.

In Bailey's case, his heels are non-existent at the moment, as well as being under-run, but already he is using the caudal hoof more effectively, and landing better, than he was in shoes and this is reflected in the photos. He finds hard uneven surfaces a challenge of course, but being on the tracks has enabled him to start improving his feet.
