Dolly's feet

These feet belong to Dolly, another arrival from Sunday. She has been diagnosed on MRI with a DDFT tear to the left foot and bilateral navicular bursitis and DDFT anomalies.
Of course the contracted frog and heels are obvious and of course she is landing toe first on both front feet but she is actually not as unsound as you might expect, at least on a soft surface.
 However this is not  an issue which has suddenly occurred overnight and so logically its going to take time for Dolly's feet to improve and strengthen.
As you can see from his angle she also has splits in her frog's central sulcus which have been difficult to deal with, particularly given the way she is landing. 

 Lets hope that there will be some good changes from Dolly in a few weeks' time.
Her footage is here:

Please explain what bilateral navicular bursa is. Will you be posting step by step treatment and update with photos?

Apologies for the typo, which should have read "navicular bursitis" - i.e. inflammation of the navicular bursa.

I will post updated photos and video in 2-4 weeks, depending on her progress. There is no "treatment" as such.
