I went by to recheck Scout and trim his rear feet... our prior trim was done in the dark and I wanted to see how he had responded. Scout's been working hard on growing good feet for about two months now, and his hard work is ***FINALLY** paying off!
His front left is looking great!!! That silly bulboud dead toe has finally a thing of the past, and HE'S GOT SOLE!! Yep, after a trail ride last week his sole stardted shedding and there is actually concavity starting to show up!!
his heels on that foot are now in a MUCH better place, his frog looks great... his coronet band has smoothed out... this boy's getting ready for an early spring roundup!
The left front is still a work in process, but its getting ready to shed a huge gob of sole and heelbuttress, and when that comes off? His heels on will be ready for the next stage of remodelong.
Scout still has lots of work to do, and maybe that's why he has the attitude. He's making all of these changes happen... we are just trying to follow the instructions he gives us on his feet. He's still weak in his rear foot on all 4 feet, but he's getting there. He isn't sound by any definition of the word and still stands with his toes pointed, but he canters and trots and his movement is slowly improving.
This damage took years to happen... it isn't going away overnight... but we are making great progress. Congradulations Vicki & Scout!
