- ... Sixteen microsatellite markers were used to assess the genetic diversity in native and imported transboundary horse breeds and populations from the Baltic Sea region, North-Eastern Europe and Asia (Mongolia and Yakutia, the Russian Federation), with a special focus on Estonian horse breeds. Testing for within-breed genetic variation, Hardy-Weinberg proportions, linkage disequilibrium between genot ...

- ... Crib-biting in horses is a stereotypical oral behaviour with a prevalence of 2.8–15%, varying between breeds. A genetic basis for crib-biting has been suggested by many researchers, but due to incomplete information on families or the lack of a sufficient number of verified crib-biters, heritability has not been determined for any horse population. However, the involvement of inheritance in behavi ...

- ... Crib-biting in horses is a stereotypic oral behaviour. Genetic susceptibility has been suggested on a causal basis, together with environmental factors such as stress, gastric discomfort and frustration caused by stall restrictions. This study aimed to test the associations of known or suspected stereotypic genes with equine crib-biting, including Ghrelin, Ghrelin receptor, Leptin, Dopamine recept ...
