Video: What Is A Horse Made Of
That's right, from the head. The withers are also no wonder to find. And how many city guys know where to look for grandmothers (don't scare them with money!), Which hussars and cowboys so meticulously assessed? If you dream of a horse, you need to know what stats it has. You will learn how to evaluate them later when you start working with a wide variety of live horses.
In the second picture, you see the "correct" horse in stance. First, the front and hind limbs are examined from the side, finally the hind limbs - standing behind the horse. In the "correct" area, when viewed from the front, the front limbs cover the hind ones, stand parallel to them; when viewed from the rear, the hind limbs cover the front ones, but still stand parallel. In this case, the hind limbs should not be excessively displaced under the stomach or set back.
In horses of the same breed, you can find individuals with deviations from the standard. If these defects do not affect performance, they are condescendingly referred to as defects. If they reduce the working and breeding value of the horse, this is already a vice.
