The Glass Horse

A "Must Have" for Horse Enthusiasts

The glass limb.

Trying to comprehend what is happening to your horse during colic is nearly impossible because equine anatomy is so much different from human anatomy. When the vet starts talking about the right dorsal colon, the cecum, the transverse colon, and the small colon – everything can get terribly confusing. When you have to make serious medical decisions under pressure, confused is the last thing you want to be! To help clear it all up, The Glass Horse offers 3-D digital animations that will instantly catapult your understanding of equine anatomy to a whole new level.

The Horse Owners Guide to Colic includes a detailed, step by step 3-D anatomy construction program in which you can “build” the internal anatomy of the horse one organ system at a time- almost like putting together a puzzle. It allows you to see “what goes where” in a step-by-step fashion. The program also includes information about colic including the common signs as well as answers to frequently asked questions about the various types of colic. Best of all, this guide shows what happens internally during 9 different types of colic, ranging from impactions to torsion. In these sections, the animated 3-D movie can be viewed from all angles with a drag of the mouse. 

The Glass Horse has extended this technology into the Equine Distal Limb for owners trying to understand lameness. Since the vast majority of lameness comes from the foot region, it makes sense to focus on this area. The program pieces the distal limb (from the fetlock down) together – one structure at a time. Within a few minutes, users are versed in knowing where tendons, ligaments and bones are in the foot. 

These two programs can be purchased as downloads or as a CD – check them out if you have a chance – you will be glad you did.
