In veterinary use, bandages are used to apply compression to swollen limbs, for support and stabilisation or even immobilisation of injured limbs and for protection of a wound during the healing process. In all cases adequate padding is vital to avoid serious damage to skin and underlying tissue.

Long narrow pieces of fabric that are wrapped around (part of) the horse's leg to keep an injury clean, to protect the limb from injury due to interference or to prevent swelling. They can be used for exercise, travel or in the stable. Non-elastic bandages (e.g. those made from fleece-like material) are typically used without padding for exercise only. Elastic bandages must be used with padding as they could otherwise cause disruptions of the blood supply to the skin. Woven bandages (wool or synthetic) combined with thick pads are typically called stable bandages. They are applied from below the fore knee / hock down to the pastern and help prevent filled legs in stabled horses. Bandages with pads extending down over the coronet an up over the fore knee / hock are used for travelling.

The bars form the abaxial edge of the medial and lateral sulci of the frog, and usually extend about two thirds of the length of the frog before tapering into the sole.

Hinterster Teil der Hornwand (Hornplatte), der zu einem Winkel eingebogen ist und den gleichen anatomischen Aufbau aufweist wie Zehen-, Seiten- und Trachtenwand (Kronhorn und Blättchenhorn).
