Dolly's 4 week update

These are Dolly's 4 week comparison photos and frustratingly she has not really made as much progress as I would have hoped. There are some improvements to her frog but it has not been sufficient to enable her to land better and she is still toe first on a hard surface. 
You can see from this angle that there are signs of her digital cushion and palmar hoof developing but the problem is that without a heel first landing she cannot work on surfaces like roads safely and this will slow her progress quite significantly. 
Slightly less under-run heels but this is again not enough to make a good landing comfortable for her.  
She certainly arrived with an incredibly poorly developed heels and frogs and they are stronger than they were but she is very far from having a healthy hoof.
