Jess' first blog post

The second horse to arrive at the weekend was Jess who has been diagnosed on MRI with impar ligament and navicular bursa damage, worse on the right foot.
There was no damage associated with her DDFT and her palmar hoof is more robust than we often see.
She has a slight heel first landing, which is normally a sign of a reasonably comfortable palmar hoof, but is landing on the lateral side of both feet.

Although there was no lameness diagnosed on her left foot it is similar in appearance and landing to the right foot. Her toes are long of course but I expect that to resolve without trimming on the tracks.
An update on Jess will follow in a few weeks and her footage is below.
