Quite a change...

 These photos show quite a dramatic comparison - Patsy's front hooves from the day she arrived 9 weeks ago till now.   There is an enormous amount of change happening in her feet.

You can see that there is a significant angle change occurring and that although her toe didn't look particularly long in shoes its going to be a lot shorter once the new angle has grown in.  Although it looks as if the heel will under-run, her hoof already has more structure caudally so that should become stronger in time as well. 
The change in the left front is less pronounced but is nevertheless going to be quite a shift in hoof balance.

Wow, that is a big difference. Would you call her right front a club foot?
