Table 3 Median number of scans in which a stereotypic behaviour was observed and range (minimum – maximum) per type of each stereotypic behaviour observed in brood mares (study 2)

From: Plasma cortisol and faecal cortisol metabolites concentrations in stereotypic and non-stereotypic horses: do stereotypic horses cope better with poor environmental conditions?

Name of the stereotypic behaviour Median number of scans, range (minimum – maximum)
Weaving (N = 9 horses) 5 (1 – 22)
Box walking (N = 5) 5 (2 – 8)
Repetitive door kicking (N = 1) 4
Head shaking and nodding (N = 1) 3
Lip play (N = 1) 1
  1. Number in brackets following the name of the behaviour = number of horses observed performing the behaviour at least once.
