Legend went home yesterday and his feet have been so sensational to watch as they changed that I knew you'd all want an update ASAP.
As you know, his feet were pretty wild when he arrived - flat, thin soled and pancaked as a result of both navicular and mechanical laminitis. I've added dates so its clear what growth and angle changes were happening when.
Rapid improvements once he was back in work - here are his feet in June; by yesterday - below - there is only a small amount of long toe left to grow out. I didn't trim his toe back because it would have overloaded his weak palmar hoof, as I explained here.
These photos show clearly, I hope, that the old stretched growth does NOT lever away the new, healthy hoof. He hasn't been trimmed at all and he has maintained and grown a better foot in short order as a result.
It won't be long until that toe has grown out and worn away, giving Legend time to adjust to his new hoof balance without sudden changes or disruption. He has been going really well and I am hoping for great updates on him before too long.
