The farrier was out today so I took before and after pics. I put them on flickr so I hope they can be viewed alright.
Obviously not perfect since Magic couldn't stand well. Fortunately my farrier is a saint and took over 2 hours to get her done this well. We could not get the hind left done at all though. Magic almost fell over a couple of times and we tried using the hill to our advantage and even the lean to to see if she would lean a little on it. Nothing worked. She wants to come back out in a month and hopefully with everything else we are doing Magic will be improved enough that we can get that one done.
After we were done we took her our in the more level pasture and she was moving great, even jigging a little in place. I think the ground in her paddock is a lot harder than in the pasture.
So my homework is: 1) Hand walk or let her free lunge once or twice daily starting with 5 or 10 minutes and then working up from there.
2) start her back on double strength farriers formula and double her equishine (multivitamin) dose so we can get the hoof growing asap
3) change her to safechoice senior (less sugar and more fat) and possibly add some canola oil for fat since she is losing weight (but we were both on the fence on that) 4) order her soft ride boots (done)
So I have some shopping to do. Overall I was impressed with how well magic did. She was better than last month with the exception of the back left. We talked about so much and I have a lot to process now.
