It’s been seven weeks since Zelda had her first trim (from dinner plates to desert plates). Today she was shod for the second time. I think her feet are looking a whole lot better. The flare is vastly improved and the areas that needed to be resected (to remove bacteria) have grown out considerably. Of course, she gave us an interim opportunity to work on her feet by pulling her right front (why is it always the hoof with the most problems that loses a shoe?) and my farrier had the chance to work on the flair then.
Zelda is now wearing bell boots to help keep those shoes on. She still has trouble remembering where all four feet are, especially when asked to leg yield or when she’s trying to convince me that she wants to do something other than what I’ve asked her to do, but that will come with time.
