How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I am interested in interdisciplinary study focusing on the affect of human intervention on animal welfare and the integration of education, communication, socioeconomic and product development in the animal welfare awareness. Website: https://people.utm.my/farahhanis/

The high prevalence of abnormal oral behaviour (AOB) in working horses has been linked to management issues and the pathophysiology of this behaviour remains unclear. Therefore, this study aims to elucidate the blood profile, hormones, and telomere length responses between low and high levels of AOB among different horse working groups. A total of...
The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of dietary nutrients on oral stereotypies and redirected behaviors among horse working groups. A cross-sectional study was designed with a total of 207 horses from 7 established equestrian facilities consisting of leisure, equestrian, patrolling, and endurance working groups to determine the...

Scientific studies on the mechanism of rolling behavior are limited. Therefore, the objective of this current study was to investigate the factors that influence the rolling behavior in stabled horses. This study hypothesized that if rolling is an intrinsically motivated behavior, the horses may frequently demonstrate the behavior if given enough s...
The present study aimed to provide preliminary data on the prevalence of oral stereotypic, locomotory stereotypic and redirected behaviours as well as their associations with stable management and feeding practices. In this cross-sectional study, a total of 207 working horses used for leisure riding, equestrian sport, polo, endurance and patrolling...
This review focuses on associations of cortisol and the hormone ghrelin on abnormal oral behaviours, predominantly stereotypic behaviour, in horses. Abnormal oral behaviours are prevalent in the stabled horse population. Feeding practice and satiety seem to play a significant role in the development of the behaviours. The effect of macronutrients o...
