ulna

A bone in the horse's forearm, closely associated with the other forearm bone, the radius. In the horse, the ulna is partially fused with the radius and only extends a short distance toward the carpal joint. It therefore has no weight-bearing function; its most important structure is the olecranon tuberosity, a point of attachment for muscles.
