    The following request is from a graduate student(animal science) who is in an
    undergraduate biomechanics course. She has searched the literature without
    much success and asked me to post the following note:


    I'm looking for articles and information on the overextension
    of the distal leg (3rd metacarpal, 1st phalanx, and 2nd phalanx) in horses. It
    is known that racehorses can overextend that joint and smash or fracture the
    proximal sesamiod bones when contact is made with the ground in extreme
    overextension, but I can't seem to locate articles on the subject. What I
    would like to relate this to is the overextension of the distal foreleg in
    horses landing from a jump, and the analysis of the overextension. Any and
    all suggestions are welcome.
    Thanks.
