P3 is the third bone of the pastern, or the distal phalanx, or third plalanx bone, commonly referred to as the coffin bone.

P2 is the actual pastern bone.

This has always tickled me - everybody knows what the coffin bone and the pastern bone are, did we really need different names for them? This is a case where terminology does not make things clearer but makes them more confusing!

Haha agreed! It sounds more like we're playing battleship or something than describing bones of a horse

This thread is super informative so thanks to everybody for asking and answering so many questions!

It is a bit worrisome though, I'm not sure if I can remember all the terms but I will be studying and trying!

I have a question too: can somebody explain more about the hot/warm/cold blooded horses? I saw on one of the first few pages how the breeds were classified, but i don't really understand the why behind it...(like draft horses being considered cold-blooded, is it because they are generally calmer breeds or are they lazy...basically is it breed traits for each group?) I hope that makes sense

Random, sorry guys -

This might be a tough one, lol: Does anybody know what it is called when a horse is pulling a carriage (or hearse or whatnot--anything) and the driver is sitting on the horse rather than on the carriage or whatever?

Thanks!

private treaty?

Ok so I know that a private treaty is an agreement or contract between a buyer and a seller or between a stallion and a mare owner. The agreement is made directly between the parties involved

But why on earth would you have one for a Gelding?
