Keywords:Placenta, Mares, Pregnancy, Foals, Parturition
This review intends to show the main factors that may affect intrauterine growth and the placental’s nutrients supply to the fetus, morphofunctional aspects placental efficiency, correlating them with performance indexes, such as breed, age and pluriparious. This study aims to discuss the interrelationships that determine greater placental efficiency, proposing a comparative parallel between various species in order to understand more about the placental efficiency in the equine species.
