BEARDS OF HORSES. The part underneath the lower mandible, on the outside, and above the chin, which bears the curb, is called the beard or chuck. It should have but little flesh upon it, without any chops, hardness, or swelling, and be neither raised too high nor yet too flat, but sufficient to sustain the curb in its right position.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
