HAM, or Houoh, of a horse.
The ply or bending part of the hind leg, comprehending also the point behind and opposite, called the hock.
The hams of a horse should be large, full, and not too much bent; nor overcharged with flesh, nervous, supple, and dry; otherwise they will be subject to many imperfections.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835._
