A technique was established for the examination of the soft tissue structures of the palmar aspect of the distal equine limb using an ultrasonographic unit equipped with a 7.5 MHz linear array transducer and a separate echolucent stand-off block by performing examinations in six cadaver limbs and in twenty-five adult Thoroughbred horses. The flexor tendons had shapes on ultrasonograms which corresponded with their expected anatomy and their size varied along their length. The lateral to medial and dorsal to palmar dimensions of the flexor tendon were correlated with each other and with the age, weight and height of the horse, the limb circumference and metacarpal bone diameter but consistent relationships between pairs of variables were not evident although the correlation between a variety of individual pairs was significant (p< 0.05).
