    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.
