We remeasured Volta’s front feet, they had not been trimmed since April. There are no cracks in his hooves at all and they are growing into a good shape. His off fore was 11cm in April and for July 14cm so his foot has grown 2 cm. His near fore was 11.5cm in April and for July 14.5cm, so this showed us he is growing the same in each hoof. Very interesting to see he was still .5cm larger in the same hoof as last time! These are the little things you would not recognise if you were not being so meticulous and measuring their hooves before each trimming.
