Today’s anatomy lesson

I found this totally fascinating. I’d always thought of the fetlock as the ankle, but this actually makes more sense.

So the hock is the ankle, and the stifle is the knee.

Though, the longer I look at this, the more I get uneasy all over again about how fragile horse’s legs are.
