Willow Wickerwork Fence- this is a woven fence made of narrow willow branches that was originally used where rodeo cattle were pinned, when the sport of Chilean Rodeo was starting. This fence was totally vertical, and as a result, the horses often hit their muzzles or bits against the fence, rendering them undesirous of pinning cattle again.


Windpuff- these are slight synovial distensions in the joints of the fetlock that can sometimes also be confused with fluid from the distal portion of the superficial flexor tendon sheath. Most commonly seen on the forelegs where the horses carry the majority of their weight.
