[en] Juvenile interphalangeal degenerative joint disease is frequently observed in ardenner horses. The aim of this study is to established a radiographic examination's protocol of the distal limb and to apply it to ardenner horses. This investigation method takes assess of the standings, the conformation and of the potential lesions of the digits. An essential point of this protocol is the quantification of the asymmetrical articular compression of the interphalangeal joints. Thirty-two ardenner foals of 250 +/- 21 days were radiographied. The most frequently observed anomalies are first, the existence of abnormal standings such as distal interphalangeal flexion and external articular compression of the interphalangeal joints. Second, it shows in some cases, an abnormal conformation of the second phalanx. Finally, this protocol points out the existence of juvenile degenerative joint disease and of ossification of the fibrocartilages in some foals at this age.
