A Quick Look at the Equine Skeletal System

Have you ever wondered what the skeleton of the horse looks like? Yes, that equine partner of yours that you put those protective hoof boots on has over 200 distinct bones in his body that all play such an important role in his or her life. I believe that every horse owner should know a bit about the inner workings whether it is the hooves or the over-all skeletal make-up. Once you see first hand a hoof dissection and now this video about the skeleton, it gives a different perspective when you go out to the barn to see your beloved partner.

See what your horse's skeleton looks like and get an overview of how it works with Dr. Roberta Dwyer of the University of Kentucky's Gluck Equine Research Center.
