Factors which influence parturition in the mare and development of the foal
Contributor(s):: Campitelli, S., Carenzi, C., Verga, M.
127 foals born to 127 mares were studied. Mares aged 5, 6-11 and 12 yr gave birth to foals with birth weights of 42.65+or-6.175, 51.07+or-7.031 and 46.05+or-8.816 kg resp. and foetal membrane weights of 5.45+or-1.000, 6.27+or-1.191 and 6.37+or-1.104 kg; differences between age groups were...
Fetal kinesis and a condition of fetal inertia in equine and bovine subjects
Contributor(s):: Fraser, A. F.
A salient feature of behaviour in the fetus is movement. Kinetic behaviour in equine and bovine fetuses has been progressively studied in recent years using doppler ultrasound. As specific features of fetal kinesis have become identified in this study, fetal behaviour patterns have become...

Meeting on social and reproductive behaviour in domestic animals, Cambridge 30 June-2 July 1976
Abstracts are presented of 13 papers given at the 1970 Summer Meeting of the Society. They deal with social behaviour of cattle, pigs and poultry; mating behaviour of mares, sheep, pigs, primates, rats and budgerigars; lamb-ewe relations; and welfare of transported pigs.

Preliminary studies on the behavioural detection of oestrus in Belgian "warm-blood" mares with acoustic and tactile stimuli
Contributor(s):: Veeckman, J., Odberg, F. O.
The object of this study was to find a reliable, economic, time-saving and easy method to "try" mares for oestrus without the use of a teaser male. The reactions of barren mares, mares with a foal at foot and maiden mares towards the teaser were established and compared to the reactions towards...

Refuge-seeking and pest avoidance by feral horses in desert and island environments
Contributor(s):: Keiper, R. R., Berger, J.
Patterns of resource exploitation were examined among 2 populations of feral horses in the USA, to investigate whether harassment by insects results in the use of 'refuge' sites to minimise pest pressures. In the first study site, Assateague, a barrier island off the Atlantic coast of Maryland...
Review of some research areas of applied and theoretical interest in domestic animal behavior
Contributor(s):: Houpt, K. A.
There are numerous areas worthy of study either because they have received little or no study and are of basic interest, or because they have application to current problems of livestock production. Cat behaviour falls in the former category. Neither the food and water sources, reproductive...
Sensory aspects of the sexual behaviour of mares
Some effects of maternal deprivation on maintenance behavior, spatial relationships and responses to environmental novelty in foals
Contributor(s):: Houpt, K. A., Hintz, H. F.
The behaviour of six artificially reared foals and six reared by their dams was studied in two environments, a familiar pasture in the company of other foals and in a strange paddock alone. On familiar pasture there was little difference in major activities (contact with other foals, time spent...

Studies on the formation of ungrazed eliminative areas in fields used by horses
Contributor(s):: Odberg, F. O., Francis-Smith, K.
Horses accepted cut grass from areas left ungrazed and used for elimination as long as faeces were not present. This indicated that aversion to faeces rather than a difference in palatability led to ungrazed areas in pastures.
