Quizlet clipping quotEndoquot Harrowing How does deworming lead to resistance How does parasite control include environmental comtamination control how is clipping helpful for inhibiting endoparasitic contamination TF Small Strongyles are the most problematic parasite for yearling horses Things that can be done to inhibit comtamination What are some impacts of Stronglyles on horses What are the two typesof Stro nglyles What is thromboembolic colic Where are Large Strongyle prominent in the body AN EQ 102 Endoporosi res Lecture Study online at quizlet coml jxi54 13 Where external to the horse39s

The remaining 10 will go on to reproduce creating a new population that is 99 u naffected by the previous deworming Thus we should only treat when needed and with an appropriate dosage Where do the eggs in fecal matter end up Spread across fields the long grasses maintain good temperatu re for larvae buzz it all False s cyath ostomes are the most problematic parasite for adult horses in tod

pastures and paddocks Bc contaminated matter may lead to the spread of more lavae or eggs Quizlet Androgen aka testosterone comesfrom and does what At what age does a lly become sexually mature At what age does a lly hit puberty At what day can we see a fetus39s heartbeat At what day can we see a placenta At what hour must the placenta be out ofa mare before she is killed by it At what point can we tell the gender ofthe foal Endocrinology Estrogen comes from and does what Example ofa Glycoprotein Example ofa simple protein FSH Follicle Stimulating Hormone comes from and does what GnRH

follicle becomesa CL TF Glycoproteins are water soluble TF Nonfertilized oocytes shed out of the mare every time she cycles TF The Cervix is the glans penis of both genders The Anterior Pituitary Gland it stimulates steroid production in the gonads The Pineal Gland it stops GnRH and is stimulated by extended periods of darkness thus actually decides the breeding cycle The shape of the oviduct is a little awko taco in that it wiggles back and forth but it never folds over itself The gonads actually is really only measurable in the ovary and min uet amou nts can come from the placenta regulates the hypothalamus39s production of GnRH Gn RH decreases for both males and females The uterus it stops progesterone production thus allowing a mare to cycle again Actually true more or less A mare can stop going into labor iffeelings stressed out False horses are again unique in the fact that they have a reversed orientation for their cortex and medulla True thus it CAN enter the cells without a h itch However they require transport proteins when in the blood False It is d u ring Metestrus Truethus they have no problem entering the blood stream However they cannot enter a cell easily False Oocytes collect in the oviduct until they are shed when the mare actually becomes pregnant False The Clitoris is the glans penis of both mf horses this means that it is the mare39s eq u

body TF The Uterus contracts TF The uterusis responsible for prostaglandinFZAlpha production TF We only need to breed a mare every three days when trying to ensure pregnancy TF When the foal is born it is moderately protected against disease There are three glands the Ampulla the Vesticular Gland and the Prostate Gland associated with the stallion39s reproductive abilities What does the Ampulla do There are three glands the Ampulla the Vesticular Gland and the Prostate Gland associated with the stallion39s reproductive abilities What does the Vesticular Gland do False Its everything that doesn39t come from pores The Exocrine system is composed of the goods that come from pores saliva sweat False The body is actually too hot thus the testis hang outside of the horse39s body True True True this helps quotselectquot the good vs the bad sperm as the contractions help the sperm that swims the fastest to the endgame True Its also I guess responsible for NOT producing this when not pregnant False Sperm can last for up to two days so its every two days False Where you listening in lectu re Foals are completely 100 vulnerable to disease at birth We honestly don39t know The best

consistent lameness in a straight line obviously lame at the walk Nonweight bearing lameness where the horse doesn39t even want to put its foot down True False this actually is pretty uncommonJust

mechanical movement of the body When one allele completely masks the other and only one is truly expressed The widest part ofthe foot everything is pretty much centered around that quotElectricquot quotmusclequot quotwatchquot focused on understandingthe muscles and their use in movement When many genes interact to produce a single trait but not necessarily a happy quotmediumquot between the two for example a black and a white horse will not produce a mouse grey not necessarily but maybe a horse with both whiteblack pigments Everything in the chromosome is capable of separating and being passed on to the next generation independent ofthe other genes ofthe organism aka any allele combination can occur from the parents to create any number of possible outcomes Of the two alleles an organ ism has only one will be passed to an offspring Quarter Horses sturdy strong and EASILYVISIBLE even along the topline they should be five to six feet tall higher for stallions with divides between pastu res being at least 45 feet Neither allele masks the other and they are both expressed For example the roan coat color The full range of motion a joint can have 123 124 125 126 127 128

between sex in uenced and sex linked traits What is the Duckett Bridge What is the equation for phenotypes we were taught in class What is the equine genome made up of A branch of biomechanics that describes motion involved everything from the shape ofthe body to the length of stride The science of movement Exactly HALF of the given trait we39re examining is contributed by one allele aka exactly half of the trait is expressed with one allele while the other half is expressed independently For example heterozyG OATS I thought that picture was actually quiet hilarious Two alleles will actually piggyback off each other and the dominant allele is taken to an extreme for example a horse that39s 17 hands breeds with a horse that39s 14 hands and the offspring is19hands The tip ofthe shoe Most of the horse39s weight is on the foresection of the body In sexinfluenced traits a male and female may have the same genotype but the traits will be expressed differently for example fat distribution in human bodies In sexlinked traits a pattern of in heritance where particular genes are carried on and passed across generations the catch here is those particular genes are carried on the X or Y ch
