pedigree analysis in the austrian noriker draught horse: genetic diversity and the impact of breeding for coat colour on population structure.the pedigree of the current austrian noriker draught horse population comprising 2808 horses was traced back to the animals considered as founders of this breed. in total, the number of founders was 1991, the maximum pedigree length was 31 generations, with an average of 12.3 complete generations. population structure in this autochthonous austrian draught horse breed is defined by seven breeding regions (carinthia, lower austria, salzburg, styria, tyrol, upper austria and vorarlberg) or through ...200919765161
individual-based assessment of population structure and admixture in austrian, croatian and german draught horses.all over europe, the number of draught horses has decreased drastically during the last 50 years. as a prerequisite for efficient management decisions, we analysed the conservation status in austrian (noriker carinthia - nc, noriker salzburg - ns), croatian (croatian coldblood - c, posavina horse - p) and german (altmaerkisch coldblood - a, black forest horse - bf, mecklenburg coldblood - m, rhenish german draught horse - r, saxon thuringa coldblood - st, schleswig draught horse - sch, south ger ...200717035951
horses and borrelia: immunoblot patterns with five borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato strains and sera from horses of various stud farms in austria and from the spanish riding school in vienna.grazing animals are continuously exposed to tick bites. consequently, one may expect that horses will become infected with the various pathogens carried by ticks including borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. whether horses may develop clinical disease due to this pathogen is controversially discussed. we were interested to learn about the infection of horses with borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato within one season by studying the dynamics of the humoral immune response in paired blood samples. the ma ...200212141766
