Which one is laminitic?

Quiz - Part Two

Which hoof is showing signs of laminitis?
What are the signs?
Can you match the photos in this post to the ones in the previous quiz?

Might even be the same horse before and much later after. The top photo shows the characteristic rings of several laminitic episodes, I believe.

The rings in the first photo indicate several bouts with laminitis. The first hoof is also pulled forward with run-under heels. The bottom photo could show the same hoof with barefoot hoofcare management after the rings have grown out. I would expect that the top photo matches the top photo in the first quiz. The bottom photos in each quiz might be the same hoof at the same time.
