    Yes, there are only tendons & ligs, no muscles distal to the carpus. I think tight muscles/restricted bloodflow may possibly be one part of the equation, and increasing circulation is helpful regardless IMO, but there's a lot more to it than that

    I would love to know what these "landmarks" are as well if you wouldn't mind sharing.
    Depth(or lack) of collateral grooves, particularly around apex of frog, a/p(front to back) hoof balance, shape & concavity(or lack of) of the front of the sole, flaring, length of hoof capsule & where coronary border is in relation to the fetlock joints, angle of coronary... I think from memory, Pete Ramey has a good explanation of that sort of stuff on his site hoofrehab.com.

    Oh & yes, I have a sarcastic sense of humour too & have also found it doesn't go down well in writing!
