Seems to be growing lop-sided – outer wall is longer or am I imagining it?
|Last November, for comparison. Left is trimmed, right is unshod but otherwise untouched|
Side view, long in the toe, heel is underrun I think? It doesn’t look like the slope of the pastern continues in the hoof, too.
Solar view. The Left hand wall is the bit that caught my eye the other day, it has worn in a very ragged way. Frog is very flat, no heel bulbs to speak of (all four feet are like this)
Left Hind. I’ve got a few more pictures of this one from last November.
Front view. Again, growing lop-sided. I’m wondering if it’s significant that both feet on the Left Hand side have become longer on the outside wall.
Side view, it’s got that bull-nose look, and it’s chipping at the side where it’s flared out
Solar view, the most obvious problem to me from this angle is the ragged flare on the left wall
Again, the outside wall looks longer, but it’s not so flared out on this foot. The pink mark is an old bruise, and I think the chips on the inner wall may be the last traces of nail-holes.
From behind. It’s not the best angle, so hard to judge if the foot is straight or not.
Solar view. To my eye, this doesn’t look bad, apart from needing a trim and the whole frog/heel issue. The toe has definitely shortened since last Nov. and I think the hoof has grown a little wider.
At first I thought this one looked good, then I began to have doubts. Ok, it’s a bit long.
Solar view. Yup, needs a trim!
I’m looking forward to hearing what Anja has to say about all this next week. I’m also looking forward to hearing what she thinks of Flurry’s feet – I hope I’m correct in thinking that they’re good!
