UNDERSTANDING HORSES’ JOINTS AND WHEN TO FEED A JOINT SUPPLEMENT
Joints are highly complex structures. The bone surfaces of a joint are covered in articular cartilage. This cartilage acts as a shock absorber to cushion and protect the bone. The joint is surrounded by a capsule that holds the joint in place. The inside of the joint capsule is lined with the synovial membrane. This produces joint fluid. Joint fluid lubricates the joint and provides nutrients to the articular cartilage to keep it healthy.
