A genomic tour-de-force reveals the last 5,000 years of horse history

Each year on the first Saturday in May, Thoroughbred horses reach speeds of over 40 miles per hour as they compete to win the Kentucky Derby. But the domestic horse wasnt always bred for speed. In fact, an international team now has evidence to suggest that the modern horse is genetically quite different from the horses of even just a few hundred years ago....


Is one toe really better than three? How horse' legs evolved for travel rather than speed

Palaeobiologists have uncovered new evidence that suggests that horses legs have adapted over time to be optimized for endurance travel, rather than speed....


Zebra stripes are not good landing strips

The stripes of a zebra deter horse flies from landing on them, according to a new study....


Laminitis research to help save horses and ponies

Laminitis -- a complex, common and often devastating disease -- is the second biggest killer of domestic horses. Now a body of important research on it has been compiled....


Endocrine-disrupting chemicals linked to equine metabolic syndrome, study shows

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in a horses environment may play a role in the development of equine metabolic syndrome (EMS), according to new research....


Cancer comparison across species highlights new drug targets

Cancer genes in mucosal melanoma, a rare and poorly understood subtype of melanoma, have been compared in humans, dogs and horses for the first time. Researchers sequenced the genomes of the same cancer across different species to pinpoint key cancer genes. The results give insights into how cancer evolves across the tree of life and could guide the development of new therapies....
