Wouldn't hurt to ask the vet and farrier about the possibility of laminitis in the other foot. Feet subjected to the extra stress of compensating for an opposing foot can have problems.
Laminitis has always been a concern and at this point she has no signs of anything
With her using her bad foot more and more it will take stress off her other foot.
I have posted a few pics from today. The first pic is the shoe off and some cleaning of the hoof and the pics progress to the shoe completed. The blood is from some granulated tissue that was removed. The tissue has tons of tiny blood vessels but little to no feeling. The vet and farrier wanted to have the tissue flush with the existing sole. April goes back in for a shoe reset/trim in 6 weeks.
