    The riding has been going pretty well. I have been light with her to try to build her back up since she did lose some muscle and stamina. She has not been lame and has no problems moving about on her foot. She has seemed to retain her training so I feel she will be ready for my first show late march/ early April. Her next appointment is on the 28 th and I think they will be pleased. Thanks for asking!!

    April went in for her vet/farrier appointment tonight and things are looking good. She has some good hoof growth for the most part however her heel could use some help (a little sign but not totally positive it is all coming back). Even if it does not come back she will still be fully functional for riding. The same shoe was put back on and we padded to prevent snow from balling up in the sole of her hooves. I was given the OK to keep riding and to slowly up the intensity of the rides. Her next appointment is Jan 16th.

    Just a note on the pictures... she looks winged out but really is not. She was ready to go home to eat supper and not stand for pictures

    Thanks everyone for you thoughts and prayers through all of this!!!! It really helped :)

    That is great regrowth! It looks like the frog on that foot is nearly back to normal? Given another couple of months you'll probably be trimming and getting started on smoothing that outside wall. I am sorry you both have gone though this, but it was fascinating to see the progression and healing in the pictures you have taken.

    Oh, wow!!! She's looking incredible! From the first pictures, I never would have guessed it would grow back as well as it already has.

    Wow, great job with helping her! Kudos to you for helping her get through this, I know that many people would have just given up and put her down. Good luck to you!

    Wow-that's amazing. Looking at the first pictures, I would never thought she would be sound enough to ride again.
    Great job.
