The typical horse neck is about 1/3 horse’s length, measured from poll to withers, with a length comparable to the length of the legs. A short neck neck is one that is less than 1/3 the length of the horse. Short necks are common, and seen in any breed.
A horse’s hoof is composed of the wall, sole and frog. The wall is simply that part of the hoof that is visible when the horse is standing. It covers the front and sides of the third phalanx, or coffin bone. The wall is made up of the toe (front), quarters (sides) and heel.
The horse with a bull neck has a short, thick, and beefy neck with a short upper curve. The attachment to its body is beneath the half-way point down the length of shoulder. This trait is fairly common, especially in draft breeds, Quarter Horses, and Morgans.
