Tadpole's 8 week update

Time for Tadpole's 8 week update now, and as with the other horses there are some obvious changes in his hoof capsule as the new hoof grows in. 

This will result in a shorter toe and a more supportive palmar hoof as the foot continues to grow. 

Some good changes in his frog with more strength evident in the back of the foot. 

There is still lots of change to come and I would expect his palmar hoof to carry on strengthening over the next few months. 

On the left foot and again there are some big changes in his hoof capsule are now visible. 

Still a long way to go before his frog has de-contracted, of course, but there is improvement, albeit happening steadily rather than rapidly. 

His digital cushion is also slowly improving but again will take time before it is as good as it can be. 

Tadpole's footage is here:
