Anyways, went out there and got eat up by mosquitoes. I went in determined to at least bring the heels back on his LF as I wasn't able to last time. I succeeded! He was a lot more comfortable this time. He did a lot of sitting back on his haunches to rearrange his RF, but was able to stand on his LF for periods of 30 secs to 1 min before squirming. A lot better than him immediately going two legged last time. They are not brought back completely. I did what I was able to and by that point he was really getting ouchy so I let him relax. He is such a little sweetheart. You can't help but fall in love with him when he looks at you with those big ol' eyes.
LF Sorry it's blurry, I wanted to get done on this one ASAP
Still need to bring the heels back more. Again, don't let the pics fool you. The heels are indeed taller than the sole.
LF before cleaning it up with the rasp. Note that I didn't touch the toe this time. Since I wasn't able to take his heels back last trim, I wanted to make sure that all blood vessels and other bleedy parts were backed up before I touched his toe. So I'll take his toe back on the next trim just to be safe.

LH. See where I got close to blood?
Overall after pic
No videos this time. We were being devoured by mosquitoes! He is walking well. He was a little sore after standing on his RF for the trim, but the soreness went away within a few minutes and he was walking fine when we left. So we're basically doing baby steps from now on. I didn't even touch the bottom of his other 3 feet(I checked the heels and they had not moved, so let him be for now.) All I did was nip a bit of toe off then rasp everything smooth and give him a little rocker to improve breakover. I don't see any new hoof growth so far. I'll be interested to see how his new hoof grows in.
And that's all for now!
