Social buffering in horses (Equus caballus): Influence of context, companion familiarity and companion habituation
TLDR
It is proposed that circumstances which permit greater contextual processing may facilitate demonstration of behavioural effects of social buffering, whereas buffering in response to startling events may be manifest only during post-event physiological recovery.
Social buffering in horses is influenced by context but not by the familiarity and habituation of a companion

It is proposed that circumstances which permit greater contextual processing may facilitate demonstration of behavioural effects of social buffering, whereas buffering in response to startling events may be manifest only during post-event physiological recovery.
Can emotional reactivity predict stress responses at slaughter in sheep
Choice of attractive conditions by beef cattle in a Y-maze just after release from restraint : Effect of sheep
To provide useful information on how to moderate post-handling stress, Angus heifers (n = 157) were individually allowed to enter a choice area after 2 min of restraint in a crush and to choose

Effects of Androgen Treatment on Behavioral and Physiological Responses of Heifers to Fear-Eliciting Situations
TLDR
Longer androgen treatment reduces fearfulness in cattle, at least in some situations, and possible mechanisms by which testosterone influences fear-related behaviors are proposed.
Corticotropin-releasing factor antagonist attenuates defensive-withdrawal behavior elicited by odors of stressed conspecifics.
TLDR
Results suggest that central injection of alpha-helical CRF(9-41) reduces the level of fear induced by odors associated with threat, and CRF receptors are implicated in mediating the species-typical display of defensive-withdrawal behavior.
