BREAKING DOWN


BREAKING DOWN. This accident often occurs in racing, and sometimes in hunting, but very rarely upon the road. A strain iu the back sinews is sometimes called by this name ; but, when a horse breaks down, the fetlock joint, when he rests on that leg, absolutely bears upon the ground. This accident is supposed to depend on a rupture of the great suspensory ligament of the leg ; but sometimes it is occasioned by a rupture of the ligaments of the pastern, and a consequent dislocation of the small with the large pasterns. If we examine the tendons and ligaments on the back part of the shank, we shall find that the great flexor, or perforaus tendon, is supported by a strong ligament, nearly as large as itself, which proceeds from the back part of the knee, or from the upper and posterior part of the great metacarpal or canon bone. About three or four inches down, it joins the perforaus tendon, and becomes intimately mixed with it. If this part is examined, it will clearly appear that a rupture of the suspensory ligament of the fetlock joint would not bring the horse down upon his fetlock joint, unless this suspensory ligament of the perforaus tendons were to give way also.
