Factors influencing the gestation length in thoroughbred mares bred during foal heat in India
Keywords:Foaling, Foal heat, Foal sex, Gestation length, Mare
AbstractThe obtained data represent the record of reproductive performance of mares in the southern part of India. Statistically, the period of breeding, age of mares, sex of the foal had no influence on gestation length in Thoroughbred mares bred during foal heat, although increased age had enhanced the gestation length by 1â€“4 days and mares carrying colt foals had 1â€“2 days longer gestation than that of filly foals. The findings of present study need to be confirmed on a large population before making their use in equine husbandry practices.
