Abstract
Based on the corporal measures made after birth, 3 months, 6 months, 1, 2 and 3 years, we observed the main grow values evolution in young horses, females from Shagya race in the conditions offered by Radauti troop. In this work we analysed 3 dimensions that are more important: waist, thoracic perimeter and tibia perimeter. Regarding waist, the grow speed was of 14,1% in birth-3 years interval, 16% in 3 to 6 months interval, 6,1% between 6 months and 1 year, 7,6% in the 1-2 years interval and 1,4% in the 2-3 years interval. The grow intensity had the next values: 14,9% for 3 to 6 months, 5,9% for the 6 months–1 year interval, 7,3% in the 1-2 years and 1,4% in 2 to 3 years. Concerning thoracic perimeter, the relative grow speed was: 12,8% in birth – 3 months interval, 16,7% in 3 to 6 months, 20,9% in 6 months–1 year, 3,6% in the 1-2 years and 6,8% in the 2-3 years. The grow intensity had the next values: 12,1% in the birth–3 months interval, 15,4% in 3-6 months, 18,9% in 6 months–1 year, 3,6% in 1-2 years, 5,4% in 2-3 years. The tibia perimeter had a relative grow speed of: 8,8 in birth–3 months interval, 24,3% in 3-6 months, 7,5% in 6 moths–1 year, 3,9% in 1-2 years and 3,6% in 2-3 years. The grow intensity had the next values: 8,4% in birth-3 months interval, 21,7% in 3 to 6 months, 7,2% in 6 months to 1 year, 3,8% in 1-2 years and 3,5% in the 2 to 3 years interval. In conclusion, Radauti troop offers good conditions for the growing of Shagya race.
