The horse is finished. He has a face now.
I fixed his front hooves after looking at a horse in real life. :D
-----
Edit:
I Changed the pasterns more and lowered the backs of the hooves. I also lowered his front knees.
Made in Art Of Illusion.

Much better! The pastern (the sloped bones between the fetlock [ankle] and the hoof) is still a bit short for movement and doesn't have much curve out to the hoof. This is the horse's shock absorber when he moves.
Look at these: [link] [link] [link] [link] I hope these help. ;) Coming along nicely.

Ok, I made the pastern longer. It's not exact but I hope it looks ok. The fronts are harder to see but I did make them just like the back. I also lowered the floor to show the new height of the hooves.
I also learned some new vocabulary thanks to you. :D ;) :thumbsup:

:whisper: In reality, the front pasterns have more slope to them than the rears as do the hooves. Most horses depending on breed have a front hoof angle of 52-56 and a rear hoof angle of +2 over the front. Front pasterns are longer than rears by a bit as well as being a bit more sloped since that is the most weight bearing part so more shock absorption is needed. A horse bears about 60+% of his weight on his front legs. And the knees are lower in the front. There is a saying that there is no such thing as too short a cannon bone, the one that runs from the knee to the fetlock but nature has its limits. The top of the knee needs to start at the bottom of your knee. Wiki has a pretty good skeleton [link]

Horsey is coming along nicely. :nod:

The link finally worked. Thanks!
Well take a look now. I changed the pasterns more and lowered the backs of the hooves. They're probably still not accurate but it's the best I can do right now. I also lowered his front knees. One day later I will tweek him a lot more when I'm in the mood.
Obviously you can't see this part, but I've also added the bones for his neck and head so that I can pose him and animate him later.

Looks much improved with each change. Knees and pasterns much better.

That link does not seem to want to load today. :( I'll have to try and visit it later.

I'll try to make more changes to the horse. I'm not sure how I will get the hooves to slope down like they should but I'll figure something out.
