Hmmm. Yes I can post the last pics I took a few months ago prior to this farrier. I SEE!!!! The R/F lateral, the space between the p2 and pastern bone. Yes, that hoof grows more upright, the left grows more long in the toe. I wonder if that's why. But I'll make sure it comes down a bit.
I can't believe the wonky legs she has. She's 12 and can't be fixed.
Yea the writing over the hoof and the screws are in the platform she stood on, but it looks like the lip for the xray to stand is messing up the sight as well.
The vet said she looks good. The bones are all clean. He said that the toes could come back. And the medials (inner) hoof sides could be lowered a smidge. 6 weeks ago the medials were much higher to "straighten" her legs, LOL. Farrier will be doing it my way this time. Vet laid down on the ground to see the M-L balance and showed me how the R/F lateral (outside) was jamming up into the coronary band from the medial being too high.
In 6 weeks, she has worn herself much more to her liking, , which is NOT medial high.
So Puck, I guess imbalance shows up in the joint spaces? That would be a great thing to know.
Let me find some pics.
