'Flying scapulas' and the perils of exercise
The author reports seeing several instances of disruption of the suspensory apparatus of the limbs associated with prolonged and violent exercise in cattle immediately after turnout. A severe case in a 5-month-old Limousin heifer which kept running around the field after turnout is described.The next day the heifer was recumbent, shivering with an elevated pulse rate. Gross over-extension of the flexor tendons of all 4 limbs was apparent when the heifer stood up.
