Intersex horse found on Ontario farm -

Intersex horse found on Ontario farm

Aggressive and erratic behaviour led to surprising diagnosis
 

Sam Campbell was baffled when her mare Koko began acting in a decidedly unmare-like manner, aggressive to people and trying to mount other females in the herd like a stallion. It turns out that Koko was no lady in more ways than one.

Scientists at the University of Guelph discovered that the six-year-old animal is a rare intersex, or sex-reversed, horse.

Outwardly, Koko has all the characteristics of a mare but was born with internal testes that were juicing her system with testosterone and making her act like a stallion.

"I'd been training her and she'd be fine and the next day she'd go wild. Her behaviour was very erratic," said Campbell, who owns four other horses at her hobby farm near Cobourg, Ont., east of Toronto. "Then she started showing stallion-like behaviour, urinating on other horses' feces, mounting the mare horses."

"I'm thinking, what is wrong with this horse?"

Campbell said a local veterinarian she called in performed an ultrasound examination on Koko and found what looked like internal testes, a fact confirmed when the horse was taken to the University of Guelph's Ontario Veterinary College.
