REASON FOR PERFORMING STUDY The relationship between mechanical behaviour and microscopic structure of the laminar junction of equine hooves under testing conditions requires elucidation. OBJECTIVES To determine mechanical parameters and 2D length density of profiles of secondary lamellae of the laminar junction in the dermal region and to assess possible correlations. METHODS Specimens (25 samples in total) of the laminar junction were taken from front, quarter and heel parts from 3 equine… CONTINUE READING
