Both views are lateral. The cervical vertebrae generally reflect the length of the animal 's neck. Note how much longer the horse's axis is when compared to the human axis. Fig. 2-17. The human sternum (anterior view) is compared to one of the horse's sternabrae . 26 Adams and Crabtree Fig. 2-18. A horse's right metacarpus and metatarsus (dorsal views) are shown on the left. The horse 's right metacarpus (volar view) and right metatarsus (plantar view) are shown on the right. The horse has a single main metacarpus (3rd metacarpal)and metatarsus (3rd metatarsal).

Human left tibia (posterior view) compared to the cow's tibia (caudal view). The unfused proximal epiphysis of the cow's tibia is shown at right. JJ \0 Fig. 3·10. Human left scapula (anterior view) compared to the cow's left scapula (medial view). Note that these bones are oriented as they would be in the human skeleton . Since the cow is a quadruped, the glenoid cavity forms the distal part of the bone. The blade of the cow's scapula is shaped like an elongated triangle. >I>- o Fig. 3-11. Human left scapula (posterior view) compared to the cow's left scapula (lateral view).

3-02. Human left humerus (posterior view) compared to cow's left humerus (caudal view). The cow's unfused proximal epiphysis is shown on the right. Note that the cow humerus has a particularly deep olecranon fossa when compared to the human example . 32 Adams and Crabtree Fig. 3-03. Human left radius and ulna (anterior views) compared to a cow's left radius and ulna (cranial view). The human radius and ulna are roughly equal in size. With the exception of the large olecranon process, the cow's ulna is greatly reduced.
