Here at Born in a Barn Miniatures, we take our role in bettering the miniature horse breed seriously - plus we really LOVE science! One of the ways we demonstrate our passion is by assisting in the development of a fetal tables database of miniature horses. By tracking fetuses with known conception dates, we are able to better understand their growth curves and fetal development throughout pregnancy. Our goal is to provide more accurate information to veterinary and ultrasound professionals for the future care of pregnant miniature mares.
The following are ultrasound images of Gander Hill Galaxys Burning Desire's fetus - we love watching the little ones grow!
