Scientific evidence that too much Calcium causes sidebone?

Is there any scientific evidence that  too much calcium in the horse's diet causes sidebone? In other words, will an excess of calcium, calcify a ligament in the horse's body instead of being excreted and if so does it happen in other location than the hoof?

No. Diet has nothing to do with sidebone.

Thanks, I saw someone making that claim and it seemed kind of fishy to me.
