Anatomy of the caput of os femoris of hill horses

Anatomy of the caput of os femoris of hill horses

Centaur Mylapore 10(4): 87-91

A biometrical study was made of the caput and fovea capitis of 12 os femoris from 6 adult hill horses. The caput was almost hemispherical (spherical index 41.99+or-1.09) with an extensive articular surface (circumference 16.97+or-0.73 cm). The neck was not prominent. A large fovea was situated ventromedially on the caput close to the collum. The craniocaudal and mediolateral width of the caput was similar to the shape of the fovea.
