    Yes... having strong muscles will in turn help protect your bones. Your muscles are attached to your bones by tendons and ligaments. The stronger these muscles, tendons and ligaments become, they will protect your bones from breakage. Try doing lunges, squats, hamstring curl ins... even just walking or jogging will strengthen the muscles in your legs.

    The relatively small size of a horses hoof compared to the large amount of weight that needs to be carried by those hooves limits the ability of a horse to have an amputation or prosthetic. The horses hoof is made of intricately webbed laminae, or "folds" that carry blood from the sensitive or "living" portion of the hoof (the interior bony structure) the the, insensitive or "non-living" outer shell that you see as the hoof. Too much, or too little weight born on each foot, too much or too little movement, and a whole host of other minute changes in the horses overall biomechanics, can affect that webbing causing either bruising and bleeding behind the hoof, swelling of the sensitive laminae, and in extreme cases separation of the sensitive and non-sensitive portions of the hoof. It takes very little change in the weight bearing characteristics of the horse to cause a huge change in their feet. For that reason, it is often impractical to amputate or give a prosthetic limb to a horse. There are companies that make portions of limbs, but horses with them are often not successful in living full, happy lives. Also, since horses bear more weight naturally in their front end, the hind limbs can be more easily treated in that way, however the difference is not great enough to make amputation and bracing or prosthetics feasible for horses.
