Okay! The shoes held, and he officially got real shoes again yesterday. I fractured two bones in my leg thanks to a freak out sans Drifter last week, so it was my first visit back out to the barn.
Thankfully my vet was also there at the time, and we discussed whiskeys feet. The cracks are growing out and we are still making good progress. I have noticed that where it used to look like his frogs were sunken in below his sole, they are starting to spread out and look somewhat normal.
He wears his back feet down on his own great, but his front feet seem to be growing out rather than down. We're having to trim him about every 3 or 4 weeks right now. Is there something I can suggest to help him feet begin to grow correctly? His heels have a way to go, but they are spreading. My vet commented on how much better he seems to be moving now then how he was during his PPE exam.
I didnt get too great of pics today because I can't maneuver too well on crutches. I'll try to get some better ones with a friend out to help soon. Front Left: front left.jpg Front Right: front right.jpg Both Fronts: fronts1.jpg fronts2.jpg Rear Left rear left.jpg Rear Right: rear right.jpg
And here is a picture of him from 7/26 (the first day he was at my barn) and 3 pics taken very recently. He is making quite the progression. Thank goodness we've grown into our butt. I guess I could have used him for a water slide before.jpg after.jpg after2.jpg after3.jpg
