Re: [RC] Random thoughts on hard muscles - DESERTRYDR1

I think that tennis player's thigh muscles were probably in a contracted 
state when you were admiring them.  When any muscle is contracted, it is hard.  
Think about "making a muscle" in your arm.  You shorten/contract the biceps 
area 
and it's hard (er) and looks more impressive.  But you don't walk around like 
that.

When our horses are just standing around at a vet check, most of the muscles 
should not be contracted, so they should not be hard.  If they are, it's a 
sign that they are in a pathologically contracted state.  jeri
