Terminology?

Can someone define a few terms for me, maybe with photo examples?

Cow hocks
Ewe neck
Goose butt
Wry mouth/lip
Any other odd term that you guys use on this board in relation to conformation flaws.

Cow Hocks- Hind legs "twisted" so that hooves point out instead of forward. Often, they are close together at the hocks also. http://www.gaitedhorses.net/Conforma...Ends/Rear1.gif

Ewe neck- A neck that looks upside down, so that the arch is at the top of the neck. http://www.laminitisclinic.org/image...ing/Score0.JPG

Goose Butt- Pelvis is slanted steeply toward the ground. Can't find a photo of this one.

Wry mouth-One side of the jaw is slightly longer than the other so they overbite on one side and the other side is normal, at least that's how I understand it. http://www.shirleycalderequine.com/n...ry%20mouth.jpg

And a Bonus term:

Calf Kneed- A horse's knees are behind the vertical of the leg.

Wow, Masatisan. I just spent like an hour reading that website. I wish they could have found pix to go with all their definitions. LOL.

Here is another pretty good site.
