I know that there is still a lot of tweaking to do and of course a bit of a road ahead of us to correct his feet but here is what we have so far.

Right front

Left front

Rear feet

Thank-you again for the drawings and the time Missy, I appreciate it!

Wow his feet look like they are doing much better. So much more level looking.

BTW: Love the cat in the last picture. That's funny.

There is always a cat helping around here :)

... He feels great. He isn't sore at all and seems to trip A LOT less. Aside from that its been snowing like crazy since so hes pretty much just been hold up in his run-in.

From what can be seen in those pics, looks like you've done a lot. It's not possible to tell depth or balance from these pics, but I'd just avoid rasping any sole at all, particularly around the toe, unless it's very obvious it's dead sole that's going to exfoliate soon anyway.

Its hard to tell from that picture but I would assume that where the rasp marks are, is actually false sole.
