Remember Fred? He of the staggeringly high heels that made Victoria Beckham look like an amateur in the stiletto stakes?
Fred has been out of shoes for 12 days. He is being exercised and is sound, including over limestone chippings. I have recommended a restricted regime to give him a chance to adjust to his new style feet and he will start a 'foot fitness' programme. Fred no longer trips.
If you are not an experienced barefooter - don't worry he hasn't worn his feet down to the bone - they are gradually reaching the height and shape they should be. It will be a while before they are fully restored to full foot health, but Fred is well on the way. And he is certainly very happy and sound, which is what matters.
More photos over the next week or so.
