First fortnight: Amy's update

The current group of the rehab horses have been here for a fortnight so it's time for an update. I'm starting with Amy because she has already made some good changes which are clear on photos. 
As ever, the original photo is at the top and her most recent photo is below. I'm really pleased that she is now more willing to load this foot as better movement is the key to better feet, and vice versa.  

 This is a more active foot, as you can tell, but its from the other angles that the changes are clearest.

The frog is beginning to engage better and that's the key to developing the back of her foot. 

On this foot as well there is a less under-run heel and her toe is shortening as well. 

 The same change is clear from the sole shots, which is nice.

As on the other foot, there is a stronger palmar hoof and a developing digital cushion which is a good sign. 

Amy's footage is here and she is landing better on all four feet although she still has a long way to go.

This is really great. Has she been doing work on conformable surface as well as being on the tracks?
