By contracted, do you mean the central sulcus isn't "open", or the entire frog is narrower? W/o a "before and after", it would be hard to tell what the change was, if any. They appear healthy, but there is not telling how healthy the central sulcus is from the photo. And as spirit said, it looks like the set of the one shoe interferes w the frog. The appearance of their frogs can also drastically change w ground conditions (e.g., wet) and when it is shedding.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
