Three quarters of the way there...

Its been a good weekend for three of the four horses we have here for rehab at the moment, as three of them are now landing heel first.  

They all arrived landing toe first, at least on their lamest legs, so this is a good achievement and importantly means that they are now able to graduate to working on tougher surfaces.

This is a big help as more mileage and harder surfaces means more stimulation for the feet which means more healing and faster growth, all of which are important if horses are to go home after 12 weeks back in proper work.

However one of the four is still landing toe first. She had particularly weak feet and under-developed palmar hooves so we are all hoping that a bit of extra time will help her get the landing she needs.

Clips of the changes in landing are here: and
