Researchers will study how different lighting systems affect the behavior, circadian rhythm (body clock) and well-being of stabled horses.
Researchers will evaluate three feeding systems and availability of roughage to inform feeding management and reduce abnormal behaviors in horses kept in dry lots.
Researchers will study how mare life-history factors, including age and number of previous foals, as well as mare level of attachment to her own foal affect stress-relevant behaviors at removal of the foal at weaning
Researchers will develop online training tools to help horse owners better recognize and interpret horse behavior, emotions and body language that may be indicative of health or welfare issues in their animals.
Researchers are searching for biomarkers to help identify horses at higher risk for surgical colic complications.
This study is part of our fellowship program, established to support early career research scientists. The Fellow will study the role of signaling cells in inflammatory processes associated with postoperative ileus, a life-threating complication of colic surgery.
