Due to a number of factors it becomes difficult for horses to restore their leg to the same position. There are 80 bones that are located in the horse’s legs and 60 to 65 percent of his weight rests on his legs that is the reason the horse speed can be affected and cause downfall to its amazing speed. Also horses are used in a lot of physical activities, so it would become difficult for a horse to carry on with this broken leg. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
