sacrum

The sacrum is a triangular bone at the base of the spine which is wedged between the hip bones of the pelvis. It consists of 5 sacral vertebrae which are seperate at birth but are fused together by the time the horse is an adult. Cranially it conects to the last lumbar vertebra and caudally it connects to the first coccygeal (tail) vertebra. The connection to the pelvis is a firm fibrous joint with a limited range of movement known as the sacroiliac joint.
