New boy Prince

New boy Prince arrived on Tuesday and he reminds me very much of Legend, who was here a couple of years ago - both in terms of his personality (both are Welsh cobs and I have a feeling they are related to each other!) and his feet. 
He has gone a week or so longer on his shoeing than normal in order to come down here but even so these are clearly very long and under-run hooves. 
However I would expect that - like Legend - he will grow in a new hoof capsule at a much better angle which should improve both his long toe and his weak palmar hoof. 
As well as his toe first landing he has a medio-lateral imbalance which is worse on his RF and which is also demonstrated by the wear in his shoes.   
Not the best stance or the best photo but there will be more on Prince soon.
