What are some of the conformation differences between field bassets and breed ring hounds? I am new at this and am curious about what people have seen. I agree, having seen the effects of bad conformation and the resultant unsoundness in horses, that it is essential to breed for correct conformation no matter what the animal will do with his/her life.

Are the field bassets taller/shorter? Longer/shorter ears? Long bodies or shorter than breed ring hounds? Heavier or lighter, on average? Tendency to be fiddle-fronted or cow-hocked behind?

(Hope I'm not the only one who doesn't know this stuff!)
