I am a bit sick of the heat, going out now to ride before 10 am. Breeze in the am keeps it tolerable.
When I say alternative I don't mean as in "alternative facts." 😆 What I have found is that when I try to find information on a subject to do with horse conformation, the description is verbatim in each source and has been quoted for many years, decades etc. Google bench knees and one gets hundreds of the same exact thing, not very helpful. The only other thing out there is chat board opinions. No one says, anything about the plane of the knee or how everything works together as a unit. The pictures are all side or front illustrations, including all the vet school wall charts and texts. I understand these but looking at a live horse is very different. This is a calculus problem and all I find is basic arithmetic.
Well, I am teaching the calculus so to speak, or trying to.
If you're that seriously interested in conformation, you will certainly find my new book on the subject to be helpful. It's called "Conformation: Basic Skills" -- go see how to purchase by looking at the very top thread in this Forum where it says they're almost sold out.
Hey, better in this insufferable weather to be inside poring through a new "horsey" book and learning all it has to tell, than going outside at any time other than dawn or dusk, or doing anything more ambitious than a hosie bath. Cheers -- Dr. Deb
