    So what you are saying is, the whole leg including the tendons, and such 
are included in that 9" measure.  Is that right?  With that then, a horse 
that has large tendons with med. size bone, still could be considered a 8" or 
9" cannon measurement.  Or are all tendons about the same size on most Arabs, 
say from 14.2 to 15.2?  They seem very different to the naked eye while 
standing around and looking at them.
    Sorry, I get asked this cannon bone question all the time.  Since we sell 
horse's on a large and consistent basis, I would like to know the true 
meaning of the saying.  I'm not trying to be picky about this, really.  I 
just need to know more. :)

Thanks, Tammy
