Thank you to the carer of this horse for generously allowing me to use the photos.
The first photo shows the hoof prior to being deshod on day one. The second photo is how the hoof looks 33 days later.
Horse is foot sore, but is making progress - sound in walk in the school
Hay is soaked for 12 hours and the horse is being fed a high quality general purpose mineral supplement.
Stabled during the day the horse is turned out in a grazing muzzle overnight
Exercise is 20 minutes or so at walk, in hand in a school
The horse's carer is working on their mustang roll technique
The healing angle is very healthy at approximately 52 degrees and is heading towards the ground nicely
The basement angle is approximately 39 degrees
The picture below shows the healing angle marked up in red and the basement in orange.
