Equine lameness

A score measuring the symmetry of the gait for eight trotting horses. Each horse was tested twice, namely while it was clinically healthy and after mechanical induction of lameness in a fore limb.
A data frame with 8 observations on the following 3 variables.

  1. horse: a numeric vector with an id of the horse
  2. lame: the symmetry score when the horse is lame
  3. healthy: the symmetry score when the horse is healthy
