I wonder what type of stress those muscles are putting on his skeletal system.

It could be very problematic for him as he grows up.

One would think that more muscle would result in stronger bones too. (like the extra stress of weightlifting does) They didnt mention it as a problem with the dog or cattle, so I would guess the bones just become more dense to support it.

In fact, I decided to google it, and while there isnt much on it, I did find this;

While myostatin is most well known for its effects on muscle development, it is also clear that myostatin plays a significant, direct role in bone formation and regeneration. [2009]


Below is a link to more information from the same source;

Its an annoying article to read because of all the highlighted links, but apparently the condition does affect the bones too.
