15th October, 2022 - third trim:

Louie is making great progress with his hoof transformation and we are now starting to see some really positive changes. From the side view pictures we can see Louie is starting to build some heel and his digital cushion is also starting to improve, which appears more rounded and less pointy looking. From the sole pictures we can see just how much his heels have widened in a month, in addition to his water line becoming more predominant and the Lamini beginning to tighten.
