New girl Brigitte

New girl Brigitte arrived at the weekend, a Dutch horse who has been on box rest off and on, and had multiple conventional therapies, over the last 18 months in an attempt to improve her lameness. 
She came out of shoes about 20 weeks before coming here and her feet have changed but only slowly since she hasn't been moving around much. The big ridge of bar you can see extending round her frog in this shot is always a sign of an unstable foot.
On the lateral view she is landing clearly toe first and has under-run heels as you would expect.
Both feet have decent frogs but weak soles so it will be interesting to see what happens to her feet over the next few weeks. More on Brigitte soon.
