Athletic mares are better broodmares!
If it’s Sunday, you can be sure about another interesting breeding-related fact from Scuderia SA! You can draw some paralells with human and equine pregnancy, but there are definitely great differences. For comparison, human pregnancy is about 60 days shorter than the gestation of a horse, but a human baby’s heartbeat can only be observed by week 6! This is a great example of the rapid early development of the foal in the mare’s womb.
