CROUP, (croupe, Fr.) The rump of a fowl. The croup of a horse should be large and round, so that the tips of the haunch bones be not within view of each other. The croup should have its compass from the haunch bone to the dock or onset of the tail, and should be divided into two by a channel or hollow extending to the very dock.
