Pretty amazing, huh? Very Happy

Here's a short video of trinket right after I applied her shoe,
She not favoring it nearly as much today, and I'm hoping she will be able to continue to wear her shoe, and I can get that little right front leg corrected.
It's a HUGE change for her, she been walking rolled over to the inside of that hoof for 9 months! Crying or Very sad

    I trimmed Trinket's right front again....it's actually starting to look like a normal hoof now! Very Happy
    doggone it anyway, I forgot to take a picture of her leg without her shoe on!.....she is standing up straight on it, but when she walks, she is still a bit weak, and it wants to roll inward ever so slightly, and I can tell, she doesn't like that feeling at all, she LOVES to have her shoe on, isn't that funny?! Laughing I know it's because it make her feel so much more stable on that little leg.

    Here's a picture with her shoe re-applied......I hadn't trimmed her other hooves yet.

    Looking GOOD, huh?
    Bless her little heart, it would have been such a shame for that baby girl to spend the rest f her life, walking on the side of that hoof! Sad
    Trinket (Twinkie, as Wes calls her) is such a BEAUTIFUL little thing, and such a little talker! Very Happy
    We just love her to pieces! Very Happy

    Trinket stepped on the medial extension of her shoe yesterday, when Paula was here..... it didn't come off, but it sure loosened it......she lost it sometime last night, and I could not find it this morning....... went through their stall with a fine tooth comb, as always, and walked a lot of their paddocks, with no luck, sooooooo...Momma made her another Magic Shoe this morning, and made the extension even smaller.
    I remembered to snap some pictures of her fronts without her shoe on this time!

    TA DA!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not bad for wearing her shoe for only 7 weeks, huh? Her leg was turning out to the outside from the k ee down when I adopted her, and it still does some, but the shoe has corrected that quite a bit, as well.

    She is still a bit weak in that fetlock, her hoof doesn't roll over, but you can see it give a bit with each step, and she doesn't like that...... don't blame her......she needs to wear her shoe for awhile longer, maybe next time it comes off or it's time to trim her hooves, she can go completely barefooted. Very Happy

    And as if I don't have enought to do before our trip, I had to trim Dulce's hooves again and put her shoe back on, as well!!! Confused

    I was telling Paula how BAD Dulce is to trim, but I didn't have to smoosh her up against the stall wall, with a lead rope today.....she wasn't easy, but she didn't throw a complete tantrum, so that's a big improvement in her! Very Happy

    her feet look fabulous. janell when you return i would really like you to come out and look at Teena. her front feet are changing , for the worse and im so worried about them! she did have straight little legs now they are curving at the knee. If nothing else maybe you can give Sally some instruction on how to trim her? or maybe shoes?

    kids!!!!

    An update on 8/12/12

    As of right now, little Trinket is barefooted!
    Her right fetlock still want to give with her ever so slightly, so I am keeping a very close eye on it....if she starts to roll to the inside a bit again, I will make her another shoe.

    Here is what her legs and hooves look li,e right now

    Yeah! She looking for baby carrots! Embarassed
