Social and sexual behaviour of horses under semi-natural and stable conditions in relation to their reproductive efficiency: A review.

In mares kept under stable conditions, oestrus detection is mainly based on mare’s behaviour towards a teaser stallion. Weak or equivocal signs of oestrus in mares may be one of the reasons of decreasing reproduction indices in horses in recent years in Poland. Social aspects of horses’ sexual behaviour under natural conditions and the impact […]
