Evidence of heredity of cribbing weaving and stall walking in thoroughbred horses

, : Evidence of heredity of cribbing weaving and stall walking in thoroughbred horses. Livestock Production Science 14(1): 91-96

The investigation involved 1035 Thoroughbred horses aged 3-8 years and raised in Italy. Eighty trainers were interviewed on the occurrence of anomalous behaviour. The incidence of cribbing, weaving and stall-walking in the horses was 2.4, 2.5 and 2.5%, respectively. The incidence of behavioural defects in families containing identified anomalous horses ("probands") was much higher than in the surveyed population: 30% for cribbing, 26% for weaving and 13% for stall-walking. This would suggest the involvement of a genetic component in the three vices, but due to the limited data available it was not possible to ascertain the inheritance patterns. Imitation of mares by foals was excluded as a main cause of the vices.
