Jess' first fortnight

Jess is the next horse to get an update. As usual her initial photos are the uppers ones and todays photos are the lower ones.
She is going to have quite a steep angle change I think as her new hoof capsule grows in - ideal as it will shorten her toes and shift her weight back as her palmar hoof strengthens.  
You can see from this angle how the back of her foot is changing and the footage below confirms this.  
A bit too dark/muddy for good comparison but the digital cushion/hairline is looking better today.  
 The shorter toe is already clear from these photos - and there was no trimming required!
The change is equally clear from the sole shots, and you can see that the heels are more supportive. 
Her landing was flat rather than toe first when she arrived but its improved to become more like a heel first landing today. 

Her footage is here: https://vimeo.com/265178072
