    Heidi...Boy are you right here!  I had a couple come out and turn down a 15.1 hand gelding because he only had 7 5/8" cannon bone area.
    Lets not forget that also, tendons and ligaments are measured in this area too.  You can have a small boned horse with large tendons or a large boned horse with small tendons.
    Another thing...how many horses in endurance have had broken cannon bones?  Didn't this all start with jumpers or something?
