Table 2 Model parameters (univariate) affecting the group of 48 foals for the farms listed in order of sliding ratio, with Farm 1 showing the lowest sliding ratio (0%) and Farm 5 showing the highest sliding ratio (50%) The farms (n = 5) are listed 1–5 (detailed information provided in Table 3)

From: Quantitative and qualitative aspects of standing-up behavior and the prevalence of osteochondrosis in Warmblood foals on different farms: could there be a link?

  1. Least squares means are presented at the farm level; standard deviation varied from 0.05–0.1 (*P < 0.05). The most frequent reason for standing up was the approach of another foal; OC = osteochondrosis; LSM = least squares mean
