Since 1876 Wageningen UR has owned paper-mache anatomic models made by Dr Louis Auzoux (1797-1880) including a life-size model of a stallion. The anatomical model of the horse is made of painted paper mache and iron wire. The horse’s abdomen can be opened by raising up head and shoulders. Twelve parts of the horse are dissectible: the left leg, the left side of the head, the penis; in the upper abdominal cavity: bladder and prostate, large intestine, small intestine, stomach, liver and kidneys, diaphragm, left lung, right lung and the heart. You can also find more photos of the horse in the WUR Image Collections, collection Anatomical models.
Wageningen University the horse is sometimes used in Animal Sciences classes. The model of the stallion is on display at the entrance of the Forum Library.
