CORRELATION BETWEEN SOME BODY MEASURES OF LIPPIZANER STALLION PER LINES AT ĐAKOVO STUD
Body measures of Lippizaner line stallions and their correlation were processed in Đakovo stud. The measures performed by Lydtin rod and stock band included withers height, chest girth and cannon bone circumference on the total of 75 heads. Neapolitano line was characterized by the fewest number of stallions (4) whereas Tulip by the largest one (20). Data attained by the measuring were processed by the statistical program SPSS/PC (Nie et. al. 1975). Neapolitano line stallions had the lowest
... had the lowest withers height (164.00 cm) measured by the band whereas Conversano line stallions had the highest one (166.33 cm). Withers height measured by the rod was the lowest in the Maestoso line stallion (156.50 cm) and the highest one in the Favory line (159.20 cm). Chest girth ranged between 183.82 cm (Pluto line) and 186.89 cm (Conversano line). Cannon bone circumference was uniform with all lines ranged from 20.05 cm (Tulipan line) and 20.65 cm (Maestoso lines). Correlation between withers height measured by the band and rod and that one measured by the rod and chest girth was positive and highly significant. However, correlation between others ranged from slight positive to slight negative. Neapolitano line was known for the most pronounced correlation per lines whereas Tulip line for the weakest one. Correlation between withers height measured by the band and rod was in all lines highly significant (except Tulip line) whereas other correlation varied from positive to negative.
