Hi everyone,

I'm currently in my final year studying equine science. As part of my dissertation I am looking into the prevalence of stereotypic behaviours in horses.

It would be a great help if anyone who owns a horse could fill in the questionnaire in the link below. Please fill in separate forms for different horses.


Many thanks,
Jade

I've completed that, Jade. I wish there was space for commentary on when the behaviours occur. My old ex-racing Arab has no stereotypies in the field other than wind sucking after a feed, but if shut in a box he has them all! Needless to say, he lives out 24/7

Ditto this, I answered for how mine are currently kept (out 24/7) but 1 would exhibit some behaviours if I stabled.
