It's been a while since I did any comparison photos so thought now was a good time to get the camera out! So get ready for some foot porn but my photography skills still need some practise ;0)
I've kept to just the left fore for comparative purposes but if anyone wants to see the full set let me know. His hind feet are far more concave and the angle changes are barely visible so it is interesting to compare those too.
The lateral shots show the growth and the development at the back of the foot - I hadn't noticed this as much looking at them every day but you can see from his feet that he is using them properly now. I think we will be all new hoof around week 30-32.
Sole shots show the deeper collateral grooves which coincides with a reduction in sensitivity as the sole should be thickening. The frog is looking in better shape than it was five weeks ago but we are still a long way from the chunky frogs I lust after!! His central sulcus is something I need to keep an eye on but I can't get my hoof pick into it so it is ok for now.
I also did some slo mo footage to check he is still landing heel first and I'm pleased to report we are mostly heel first but there were a couple of flat landings on his left fore. Nothing toe first though so that's good enough for me right now.
