10 C. Compare estrous cycles and gestation of different species 1. Estrus- also known as “heat.” The period of time when female is receptive to male and conception can occur.-Hormone: Estrogen2. Metestrus- Follows estrus. Usually when ovulation occurs.-Hormone: LH (leutenizing hormone)3. Diestrus- Period of cycle whensystem assumes pregnancy.-Hormone: ProgesteroneProestrus- If not pregnant, prepares body for Estrus-Progesterone drops1-Estrus2-Metestrus4-Proestrus3- Diestrus

Describe the purpose and benefits of reproductive technologies“Scamper”First Million Dollar Cowgirl, 1990Most Professional Rodeo11 Consecutive Barrel Racing ChampionshipsFirst WPRA Member listed in Guinness Book of World Records, 1987&92WPRA Record Most NFR Qualifications, 19 (consecutive)All won on her beloved horse, “Scamper”Few people involved in the horse industry haven't heard the legendary story of Gill's Bay Boy, affectionately known as "Scamper," and his jockey and partner Charmayne James who together set the world of pro rodeo on fire beginning in Scamper came to Charmayne as an untrained young prospect with a renegade reputation and was best known in those days for bucking off ranch cowboys. At the tender age of 14 Charmayne did the inconceivable. She trained and cared for Scamper and in the process revealed the limitless potential concealed beneath his common exterior. With dedication and careful attention to conditioning Charmayne produced an equine legend whose historical achievements will not soon if ever be duplicated. The young horsewoman was herself a prodigy honing her training skills to take Scamper from the anonymity of the feedlot to the spotlight of the rodeo arena. The two inevitably raced to unforgettable performances in arenas from Houston to Las Vegas and most everywhere in between along the way. Scamper and Charmayne's list of accolades together are endless and include Scamper's induction into the PRCA Hall of Fame, as well as Charmayne's place in the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame, National Cowboy Hall of Fame, and Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, among others.
