Hi Lamourah,

If she is sore, please don't force her to walk. Just allow her move at her own pace in a safe turnout area.

Her trim looks a lot better than many we see but could use a bit of tightening up. Hard to see exactly without a full set of hood photos, tho:

Getting lateral views, with her standing squarely, that include the cannon bones would be helpful. Her heels are underrun, so need to leave them alone to gain some vertical height. It appears as tho the breakover may be far enough back but the laminar wedge is still fairly extensive on those toes, so you can remove more of it with each trim adjustment. Frogs looks healthy and solid. Have a read here for a bit more on the soles and heels:

See esp. figures 2 and 3.
