Equine Advice


Gypsy, the Equine Encyclopedia, has something to say about the joints of the fore limb; proximal to distal.  Like all shetlands, she is always watching, listening and learning.

Beginning at the top, there is the shoulder, the elbow, the knee, the fetlock, the pastern, fetlock and coffin.  A horse who puts most of his weight on his front legs is called “on the forehand”.
