Large horse metatarsal

I found this horse metatarsal in a new location but again with the same geological layers, it had thick  concretion i believe to have been gravels and sand from the Pleistocene river gravels it was buried in before being washed out by flooding, covering most of it, when i removed it i could not believe the condition of the surface! It measures 115 mm long and 75mm at its widest point, weighing 675 grams.
