Set the camera on the ground so the angle isnt skewed. We can't tell what the heels are actually doing with accuracy from above the hoof. Here is a tutorial on taking hoof photos.

I agree that you have something going on here. Hoof problem creating a conformation issue or a body issue that might be creating a hoof problem? Just a conformation issue? Hard to say at this point but a vet workup is always a good place to start as well as making sure the base of his support/hoof is well taken care of and well balanced.

I keep forgetting my camera!

Took Walter for a walk yesterday and let him have a roll in the arena.

Talked to my mom and the BO. We are going to take him off his feed, and I am calling the vet tomorrow to make an appointment for xrays on both knees for the 16th.

I guess we will go from there...

I will get pictures of his feet still... whenever I remember my camera lol

Okay so Walter goes to see the vet on Friday @ 1pm. I will take pictures of the xrays! :) and get feet pictures. I snowed a LOT last night, so when the roads are good I'll get out there. :)

We're storm stayed until we blow out our drive which I don't think we will do until tomorrow after the wind dies down.

I'm hoping so as well - I've had more than sufficient winter this year.
