Anne is leaving next Sunday! She seems remarkably calm, I have to say. My Christmas guests will be staying in her house, which works out rather nicely for all concerned, but it has meant that she has to leave the house in a condition which someone else can move into, so that's extra tidying for her to do.
I've been waiting for a chance to get photos of the horses' feet again but we've all been coming and going at different times. Today we were all finally in the yard together and despite the foul weather, I was determined not to miss the opportunity. There's a couple of things going on that we're not sure of, but Anja is due back soon. Flurry's front heels are spongey and a small bit smelly - maybe this is from all the horrible wet mud they are standing in? I'm spraying with Silversol every day, but it's slow to improve.
Flurry's very large frog on his left hind has indeed become less pronounced. I'm putting the earlier photo here as well for comparison, although unfortunately I didn't take it from the same angle today.
We're posting the rest of the feet pictures below. It seems (to our inexperienced eyes) that Flurry's have grown fairly well - his nail holes are nearly gone - whereas GiGi's have changed very little. Slower growth because she is older, perhaps?
It'll be good for us to have this photo journal of their hooves' adjustment to barefoot life and it's turning out to be a good way to correspond with both of our hoof-care ladies!
