Understanding the perceptual world of horses

From the viewpoint of experimental psychology, there are two problems with our current knowledge of equine perception. The first is that the behavioral and neurophysiological research in this area has enormous gaps, reflecting that this animal is not a co

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 […]

Preliminary study of the development of the flehmen response in Equus caballus

Grazing patterns of Pantaneiro horses. An element of adaptability to the Pantanal region, Brazil

Seasonal foods and habitat use of Pantaneiro horses were determined in two Pantanal subregions: Nhecolandia (March 1990 to February 1991) and Abobral (December 1993 to October 1995). In both sub-regions, a direct pasture observation method was used in two daily sessions (morning and afternoon). The forage plants eaten and habitat occupied by animals were recorded […]
