There is a seasonal effect, but the fasting increase in ACTH is real:

From the abstract:


“Differences between fasted and fed horses were found in baseline ACTH, 17.1 ± 1.8 versus 46.1 ± 7.6 pg/mL”


This can only be read as the ACT was 17.1 ± 1.8 after fasting and 46.1 ± 7.6 2 h after feeding, i.e. quite contrary to what Linda K reported.


I assume that there is an error in the abstract?
