Title:Field study of foal weaning and rearing in one stable and its effect on the stereotypic behavior incidence
Flynn, Louise Martina
The aim of my field study was to show different types of weaning which can affect the rest of the foal’s life. Also to show how they develop a copping mechanism in a stressful situation which leads to development of stereotypic behaviour. It’s important to assessed this problem as it can lead to dangerous health issues such as teeth erosion, recurrent colic, which can be fatal.
