Hey guys, any idea what bone this is? Seems like some sort of joint.

This is the bottom joint of a femur.

Size and general shape makes me think Bovid, but lets see what the others have to say :)

This is the distal epiphysis or "growth plate" from a young individual.

I take back what I said, didn't see the Equus sp. Seems Equus and Bovine are quite similar.
