Ruby's 3 week update

Ruby also arrived 3 weeks ago, just after Felix whose update I blogged yesterday. She was out of shoes but had recurrent lameness and had never developed a consistent heel first landing. Though there was a lot to like about her feet you can see that her frog and heels aren't as strong as they need to be. 
This is the same foot today and there are some encouraging changes beginning to happen. 
 Although she is not yet landing heel first she is building up the back of her foot and I don't think it will be too long before she's ready to really start to load it consistently. 

 Less to see from the lateral angle - a slightly shorter toe, possibly. 

 Its a similar story on her RF. The stronger frog is the most noticeable change here. 

 The difference in hoof wall height and orientation is interesting. 

 Again, not a lot to see from this angle though there may well be in a few more weeks.
