Looking great. Truly amazing.

How are things (hoof I guess is what I am asking about) growing down from the top? Or is it too early to tell if there will be any ability to re-grow because of the extent of the damage?

It is too early to tell. They thought they would know by next appointment. With the toe being shorter now April Is breaking over better and this morning came out of the stall walking well

What happens if the hoof doesn't grow? Do they "make" a hoof?

Good to see it looking so good and that the other foot is holding up well. Looks like you have a great farrier/vet team :)

Good question! So I have asked that and I was told that she should have the proper balance to be functional even with some hoof gone (if it fails to grow back). She probably would never make a jumping horse or anything but will be able to continue the local shows for western, english, and showmanship.

Even today she will trot around and has broke into a lope a couple of times and is balanced. She still has some soreness which will take time to go away.

Here is a pic of her and I from last night :)

I think April is starting to like being outside more and more now. I have still been bringing her in at night since her current turnout does not have a shelter and the gants have been at dusk. She is turned out in the morning and then I clean the stall at evening feeding. More and more she seems to prolong the trip to the barn :)

Also she must be starting to feel more secure on her foot. I was out doing chores on my own last night and wanted to closer evaluate her walk so I brought her into the indoor and clipped on the lunge line. She walked for a minute and then despite being out all day she started squealing, bucking, and kicking. She was having a grand old time! After a little bit of that she was fine and continued to walk (and had that brightness in her eye).

I'm guessing she may be a bit more sore today (which the vet said she would have on and off soreness depending on her level of activity) But it brought a smile to my face just seeing that she pushing herself in her current state :)
