Last post for this week: Amy

The last horse of the new arrival is Amy. Its clear from her photos that her front feet are very different  but in fact she has had lameness issues with both front feet, 
Historically this is of course a weak foot and has probably never been as robust as it should be in terms of palmar hoof strength. However that is something that can certainly change and improvements here are what we will look for over the next few weeks. 
Her frogs are weak on this foot, as you would expect, but actually her digital cushion looks much better from this angle. 
From this view the difference between her feet is very obvious and its an indication that in the past she has used the RF much less than the LF. The lameness on the left is more recent and could be the result of overloading over time but we can't be sure. 
The frog on this foot is better and as with the other 2 arrivals there is a lot to like.
