Forehead – is under the ears on the front of the horse's head, usually covered with a forelock that grows out of the crown. More about hooves, you can find here: injuries and affliction of hooves - disturbing symptoms, causes, and treatment, including laminitis, puncturing, sore feet, and others.

Occiput – is right behind the ears, exactly where the bridle comes (namely, the occiput strap of the bridle), it is a part that joins the horse's head with his neck.In the early stages, this horn material is quite soft – deliberately so because it helps to prevent the coronet band becoming bruised as shock is transferred upwards through the hoof wall during the weight bearing phase of the stride. Additionally, while looking at the horse's jaw's intersection, you can see that his teeth go to the front as he grows older and start "leaning. A low pH favors pathogenic bacterial which can then contribute to serious diseases such as, laminitis or founder, colic, endotoxemia and metabolic acidosis. Cold-blooded horses have big heads, which allow them to additionally ballast the front of their bodies, which gives them exceptional pull strength. Post-laminitis – with deformed hoof walls with transverse rings, caused by acute inflammation of the hoof material.

The average sized horse (360 to 540 kg [800 to 1,200 lb]) has a stomach with a capacity of around 19 L (5 US gal), and works best when it contains about 7. The horse's hoof contains a high proportion of sulfur-containing amino acids which contribute to its resilience and toughness. Its muscles, length, and proportions in regards to the rest of the horse's body parts say volumes about his condition and sports predispositions but also about the quality of your training.

Horses have two-color, or dichromatic vision, which is somewhat like red-green color blindness in humans. is now on view in gallery 629 as part of the exhibition Paintings by George Stubbs from the Yale Center for British Art.

Tendons and ligaments are attached to this bone and a dense network of blood vessels run around and through it. Horses select pieces of forage and pick up finer foods, such as grain, with their sensitive, prehensile lips. Metacarpals 1 and 5 have disappeared over time whilst metacarpals 2 and 4 have significantly reduced in size. The navicular bone is not actually embedded in a tendon, but it does sit just inside the back of the pedal bone and the deep digital flexor tendon passes over it. Systemic circulation distributes oxygenated blood in the left ventricle to the whole body through the aorta and carries deoxygenated blood to the right atrium via the cranial and caudal vena cava.Pulmonary circulation carries deoxygenated blood to the lungs to remove carbon dioxide from the blood and absorb oxygen. The joints should have clear edges – if they are oval, it can suggest issues with the horse's lymph. While assessing the horse's age, you should mostly pay attention to his incisors, especially the sockets into the cutting surface of the teeth – the deeper they go, the older the horse. The hoof is heavily supplied with blood through the two arteries which run down the back of the leg and into the foot.

Serving healthcare professionals through interactive anatomy atlases, medical imaging, collaborative database of clinical cases, online courses.

There is an element of mystery shrouding these illustrations, perhaps because the artist is still unknown to us today.This intriguing and original explanation of the 11 internal body systems shows them painted on the outside to describe everything on the inside. Degenerative joint diseases (DJD) and developmental orthopaedic diseases (DOD) are more serious conditions which can cause lameness and potentially loss of use. Skin is the largest organ in the horse, made up of haired areas, non-haired areas, pigmented areas, and non pigmented areas.
