The Mystery of the Missing Lamellae

23/04/2015 by Cristina Wilkins, Editor-in-Chief, Horses and People Magazine

A recently published article in the Journal of Equine Veterinary Science suggests that our knowledge of equine anatomy may be based on outdated findings and needs to be revised. 

The paper centres around significant variations found in the nuchal ligament lamellae, which do not match conventional anatomic descriptions. 

Australian researchers Sharon May-Davis and Dr Janeen Kleine presented their findings and explained the possible affect on horse’s health and performance at the recent Bowker Lectures in Merrijig, Victoria.
