Bovine (Astrogalas)

Hello all this ankle bone measures 90 mm by 65mm ( 3.5 inch by 2.5 inch ) compared to others ive seen it belonged to a very large animal. It  weighs 250 grams (8 oz )

Horn end

Not enough to atempt an identifacation! but its heavy and has a high natural shine
as ive said before i only ever wash and then buff my bone with a dry cloth.

I found these lower leg bones in another local beck not far from Stainton Village,i believe the first
belonged to a large wild horse. It weighs 1 lb and measures 28 mm long, and 60 mm at its widest point.
