Measurements were made by real-time ultrasonography in 14 healthy mares to assess fetal growth and estimate newborn foal weights. Intrauterine fluid volumes were estimated and the placenta was measured and observed for maturational changes. The onset and incidence of echogenic particles in the allantoic fluid were recorded. In the second approach, baseline fetal heart rate, physiological rate variations and number, amplitude and duration of recorded accelerations were measured. Estimates of… CONTINUE READING
