Alfie's first 4 weeks

Alfie D has been here 4 weeks and I've just managed to get some revised footage of him which I am really pleased with.

The footage compares his landing from day 1 (below)...
...to today, 4 weeks later...
As you can see he has improved significantly. This is important because now his landing is heel first and he can engage the palmar hoof properly it means we can work him on tougher surfaces without risking strain to his DDFT.

This in turn is important because it will help his new hoof capsule grow in faster which will allow his foot to rebalance faster. A win-win situation. Plus of course its much more interesting for Alfie to go out and about rather than work on a surface.

More on Alfie soon!
