The volumetric muscles create most of the body's forms. The sheet muscles cover the volumetric muscles and bone, whose forms may be either seen underneath or concealed. Sheet muscles can also produce form directly, especially at their edges where they appear in relief. A muscle belly is the total fleshy mass of a single muscle. It may consist of one or more heads, which are distinct muscle forms that usually begin separately yet have a single insertion after they fuse together. Muscle fibers attach either directly to the skeleton or cartilage, or by means of a tendon, which may be cable-like or sheet-like.
It adds a layer of muscular thickness that participates in forming the • Action: Both sides of the body together: Extend the head and lift the volume of the neck. It is thicker in the dog and the feline than in the ox. neck. One side only: Pulls the head and neck to that side. • Structure: The splenius is a large, flat, triangular muscle located between the head, the top of the shoulder, and the neck vertebrae. It comes to the surface in an irregular rectangular window bordered by the brachiocephalicus in front, the trapezius and a small portion of the rhomboid behind, and the neck portion of the serratus ventralis (cervicis) below.
The pelvis of the ox is more horizontal than that of the horse. The front portion of the pelvis expands into the wide, flat ilium (plural, ilia).

Its front edge, called the crest, is usually curved. The crest is concave in the horse and ox where it is covered over with muscle—concealed in the horse but occasionally visible through the muscle in the ox.
