The foot is not bearing weight evenly. When he is standing square, all of his weight is on the back of the heels and the toe does not touch the ground.
He generally moves well and seems sound on it, but occasionally the heel become a pivot point and the whole foot drops down with the toe pointing upwards, stretching the pastern.
It seems like the foot needs to be trimmed back so that it will bear weight and land properly, but there is still a hole in his sole and the sole seems too thin to trim any more.
There is also some separation at the white line in this one area.
Is this normal hoof development after such surgery?
How/should I trim this?
How long is it likely to take for this hole to close?
I have finally been able to bandage the foot without covering the coronet band or his heel bulbs, which are doing much better without the constant irritation.
