Abstract

Background: Chronic progressive lymphoedema (CPL) is a disabling condition affecting various draft horse breeds, including Friesian horses. Hypothesis: The high incidence of CPL in Friesian horses suggests a genetic component and a predisposing phenotype. Animals: For the genomic study, 26 affected ...

Abstract

Background: Many common and relevant diseases affecting equine welfare have yet to be tested regarding structural variants such as copy number variations (CNVs). CNVs make up a substantial proportion of total genetic variability in populations of many species, resulting in more sequence differences ...

Abstract

The Friesian horse is one of the most iconic horse breeds in the world. The question how, why and when Frisian horse breeders established their 'ideal' - high-stepping and exclusively black - Friesian raises other questions: what is a Friesian horse? When was the breed developed and how Frisian is...

Abstract

Throughout the ages, humans have selected different horse breeds for their locomotor capacities. Consequently, the properties of equine locomotor tissues could have diversified because of the specific requirements of different disciplines. Therefore, this study aimed to compare biochemical...

Abstract

Background: Friesian horses are known for their high inbreeding rate resulting in several genetic diseases such as hydrocephaly and dwarfism. This last decade, several studies focused on two other presumed hereditary traits in Friesian horses: megaoesophagus and aortic rupture. The pathogenesis of...

Abstract

The spectrum of modern horse populations encompasses populations with a long history of development in isolation and relatively recently formed types. To increase our understanding of the evolutionary history and provide information on how to optimally conserve or improve these populations with...

Abstract

Background: Most Friesian horses reach their anaerobic threshold during a standardized exercise test (SET) which requires lower intensity exercise than daily routine training. Aim: to study strengths and weaknesses of an alternative SET-protocol. Two different SETs (SETA and SETB) were applied...

Abstract

Rupture of the aorta is much more common in Friesians compared with other breeds of horse. Rupture always occurs adjacent to the scar of the ligamentum arteriosum. Previous histological examination of ruptured aortic walls suggested the presence of an underlying connective tissue disorder....

Abstract

Background: Thoracic aortic rupture and aortopulmonary fistulation are rare conditions in horses. It mainly affects Friesian horses. Intrinsic differences in biomechanical properties of the aortic wall might predispose this breed. The biomechanical and biochemical properties of the thoracic aorta...

Abstract

The influence of a too rapid growth on equine locomotor soundness still receives relatively high attention in today's equine practice, mainly related to the appearance of uneven front feet and the persistence of osteochondrosis (OC) in our (KWPN) Warmblood horse population. In contrast, and from a...
