Columbo - another 2 weeks

Time for another update on Columbo. Regular blog readers will recall that he has already been here for 12 weeks but it was only at the end of that time, 3 weeks ago, that he started to land heel first on his lamest foot, RF. As you can see from his day 1 photo it was a pretty weedy hoof especially for such a big horse. 
After 12 weeks it was looking and functioning better - though still not textbook. He could now engage the palmar hoof and take some strain off the DDFT and navicular bone but it was tentative. 
Here we are today, plodding slowly on! Although his landing is still not established and confident he at least has been able to maintain it consistently for the last fortnight. 
Slowly slowly...
