What does "kurzheinig" mean?

Example (from here):

Das niedrig gewachsene, schmalschultrige, breithüftige und kurzheinige Geschlecht das schöne nennen konnte nur der vom Geschlechtstrieb umnebelte männliche Intellekt


It definitely is a typo (or likely an OCR error from scanning of Fraktur) since we can read the following in a contemporary publication:

enter image description here

Arthur Schopenhauer: Sämtliche Werke in zwölf Bänden

Das niedrig gewachsene, schmalschultrige, breithüftige und kurzbeinige Geschlecht[...]

It is a misspelling of "kurzbeinig", i.e. having short legs. Probably the OCR made a mistake.

It's a typo (or rather an OCR glitch). Should be "kurzbeinig" - short-legged.
