That's what we use at the VTH when the splint doesn't have to be totally
weight-bearing. If you heat it up, the PVC bends to follow the angle of the
pastern. BTW (for everyone else), the PVC is the big diameter stuff big
enough to practically enclose a leg. Nifty stuff, though even that stuff
will bend up a horse puts enough stress on it flailing around.
