Body Composition of the Horse

Body Composition of the Horse SUMMARY Seventeen horses were dissected and their organs and tissues weighed. The results of these dissections are presented together with comparisons of the data with that already available in the literature. Predictive equations for organs and tissue weights are also given which were derived by comparison of linear and allometric regression models using 4 different body weight indices. RÉSUMÉ 17 chevaux furent disséqués et le poids de leurs organes et de leur tissus fut mesuré. On présente les données recueillies avec celles figurant dans la littérature. Des équations permettent de calculer le poids des organes et des tissus, à partir de quatre indices pondéraux. ZUSAMMENFASSUNG 17 Pferde wurden seziert, ihre Organe und Gewebe gewogen.

Abstract

SUMMARY Seventeen horses were dissected and their organs and tissues weighed. The results of these dissections are presented together with comparisons of the data with that already available in the literature. Predictive equations for organs and tissue weights are also given which were derived by comparison of linear and allometric regression models using 4 different body weight indices. RÉSUMÉ 17 chevaux furent disséqués et le poids de leurs organes et de leur tissus fut mesuré. On présente les données recueillies avec celles figurant dans la littérature. Des équations permettent de calculer le poids des organes et des tissus, à partir de quatre indices pondéraux. ZUSAMMENFASSUNG 17 Pferde wurden seziert, ihre Organe und Gewebe gewogen. Die Resultate dieser Sektionen werden vorgestellt zusammen mit Vergleichen mit Literaturangaben. Gleichungen zur Bestimmung für Organ‐und Gewebegewichte werden aufgestellt, die durch den Vergleich linearer und allometrischer Regressionsmodelle mit vier verschiedenen Körpergewichtsindizes gewonnen worden sind.
