VARISSE (in Horses). An imperfection on the inside of the ham, separate from the curb, but at the same height. It injures the sale of the horse, by growing to an unsightly magnitude, but may be kept down by the application of spirits of wine.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
