Zan's 2 week update

 Zan's feet haven't changed as dramatically as some horses, mostly because -  since he has been barefoot for some years - he already had a reasonably strong palmar hoof.
He was shod, as you can see, immediately before he arrived but that was a one-off which did not improve his lameness. 

As he already has a good heel first landing it is likely that the lameness is more related to medio-lateral balance than doors-palmar balance.
 If this is the case then I would expect the biggest changes to be in the balance of this foot, which is where the lameness was most evident. 
More on Zan soon...!
