Re: Crena

That was a great view of a Crena from an actual foot.

Ideally, the healthy, strong coffin bone has a smooth, solid distal edge. When the bone becomes porous, demineralized, mechanically damaged, that changes the integrity of the leading edge along with the sole/laminar connections that meet along it's perimeter. Horses that consistently land toe-first (much too common today) will inevitably damage the leading edge of the coffin bone over time, leading to more obvious signs of that accruing damage at ground level.
