but you  CAN tell shoulder assembly and
length on a newborn pup or colt.  These  ratios are unchanging.  If a puppy
or colt has a short upper arm at  birth, or straight shoulder, it will 
remain so.   Croups change,  shoulders are constant.

How about the prosternum?  I've seen so many pups, from the age of 5 to 12 
weeks, who look as if they have little or no prosternum.

I know a good prosternum is dictated by correct shoulder layback and the 
shape and placement of the ribcage.  So, can a young puppy, who looks as 
though he/she has little or prosternum, develop a correct prosternum as 
he/she ages?

Thanks in advance for answering my question.
