  I do not wish to speak for John, but it is my understanding that while
the physics apply to both fore- and hindlimbs, the anatomy and comparisons
involved between the two are different enough to result in separate values
and results given analysis. For this reason, fore- and hindlimb analysis
in quadrupeds would require a second, and possibly a third, model to
register possible range of speed.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
