Shape, orientation and spacing of the primary epidermal laminae in the hooves of neonatal and adult horses (Equus caballus).


Circumferential and proximodistal variations in the morphology of the primary epidermal laminae of six neonatal and five adult equine feet were documented. Three parameters were quantified: interlaminar spacing, the orientation of the laminae with respect to the overlying wall, and any angulation within the laminae themselves ('internal angle'). In adult… (More)
