Effect of sex of the foal delivered and the year of birth on the third stage of parturition

Effect of sex of the foal delivered and the year of birth on the third stage of parturition

Centaur Mylapore 11(3): 65-66

A total of 164 Thoroughbred foalings were observed between 1991 and 1994. The time taken to expel the afterbirth from the moment the total fetus was delivered was recorded. Live foals delivered normally without human intervention but if the third stage continued for longer than 4 hours the expulsion of the fetal membranes was induced by human intervention as a standard practice. The average duration of the third stage of parturition was 72.54 minutes with a range of 19 minutes to 8.30 hours.
