AUSTRALIAN BREED STANDARD AND EXTENSION

FOREQUARTERS

    THE SHOULDERS SHOULD BE MODERATELY OBLIQUE CLEAN AND MUSCULAR. ELBOWS CLOSE TO THE BODY. THE FORELEGS PERFECTLY STRAIGHT WITH STRONG ROUND BONE DOWN TO THE FEET, WITH A SLIGHT SPRING AT THE PASTERN JOINT.

    The standard requires a moderately oblique shoulder. The angle between the scapula and humerus is slightly more than 90 degrees. shoulders should be well laid back and also of good length for muscles and tendons to function properly. With correct angulation the scapula, together with the humerus act as shock absorbers. the two combined lift the leg, giving the rhythmic stride called for in the standard. Length of scapula and humerus should be equal. Front legs should be perfectly straight right down to the foot, with a slight spring of pastern. They should be about the width of two legs apart and should be evenly boned the entire length.
