General [General]

The distance, which consists in a rheumatic inflammation of the tendons, muscles, ligaments, and the extremities of the bones, mostly of the fore feet, seldom and only in the worst cases the hind feet are attacked, it is most prone to happen in horses that are fed with indigestible and heating food, (especially corn), especially if they have too little exercise. Or it may be caused by continual straining, and then by sudden exposure to cold when overheated; it generally commences with fever, the animal appears drowsy, does not eat, his movements are stiff, dragging his limbs as if with acute pain, so that he scarcely stirs forward, and with greater difficulty goes backward.
