Our findings were in agreement with other studies in that microsatellite DNA genotyping is useful for individual identification, and paternity and maternity verification on horse population.
In this study, 51 fibroblast cell lines from Caspian horse ear marginal tissue were successfully established by sampling 60 horses using primary explant technique.
Caspian breed with smaller size in most variables was detached clearly from the others with more distance than Kurdish and Turkoman breeds.
A Comparison of Apparent Digestibility of Nutrient in Caspian Horse Feeds as Determined by Total Collection of Faeces, Acid Insoluble Ash and Lignin Methods
The results obtained in this study show that there were no significant difference between internal markers and total collection techniques of faeces for estimation apparent digestibility of nutrients in Caspian horses.
Evaluation of blood serum mineral and thyroid hormone concentration of Caspian Miniature Horses fed with different diets
The ratios between minerals showed better correlations with STH concentrations than the minerals individually.
The results of this study also showed some advantages for hair mineral concentrations as a helpful diagnostic tool in identifying specific breeds such as the Caspian horse.
The results of this study have provided baseline data on hair and serum mineral elements that together with information available previously on this topic could be useful for veterinarians and equine nutritionist.
Additionally, the results revealed that sperms with more elongated heads had greater straight velocity and were, in turn, more progressive.
Effects of mineral supplement and feed intake restriction on physical characteristics and growth of mane hair in Caspian horse
Physical characteristics of mane hair of Caspian horse is affected by mineral supplement and daily feed intake restriction, and should be used as an indicator of feeding the Caspian Horse.
