In this video clip, the grid back drop allows the exhibits pasten lift to be measured.
This trial illustrates how the resultant elevation increases as the velocity increases.
All breeds have pastern lift to some degree.         The Afghan Hounds pastern lift is
   greater than other sight hounds. Nature has evolved this pastern lift mechanism to

springy gait, High head carrriage and remarkable agility and dexterity.
