The second horse who arrived this weekend was Dash, recently out of shoes, as you can see. 
She has a rather under-run heel and long toe and is landing flat with a medio-lateral imbalance which is worse on the left front. 
Her palmar hoof is fairly weak, as you would expect with a horse who has navicular problems, but there is still some good structure and lots to work with. 
This is her less balanced foot and we'd expect to see an improvement in her landing over the next 4 weeks. 
Dash has a lot going for her, including a frog which although a little under-developed looks as if it should strengthen readily.  At the moment she is anding at best flat, intermittently toe first on her left front, and she is also landing laterally on the this foot as you can see from her footage.
