Figure 1.

Influence of ambient temperature and different stimulation conditions on skin temperature. Skin temperatures were measured before each thermal stimulation. All diagrams show the differences in skin temperature during warm (> 20°C) and cold (< 10°C) ambient temperatures at three different body parts of the horse (nostril, withers, coronary band) under different stimulation conditions: A: free moving horse in a box stall in the morning. B: free moving horse in a box stall in the evening. C: horse restrained in stocks, in the morning. D: horse restrained in stocks, in the evening.
