What is the function/benefit of the Endocrine system in the horse?

The Endocrine System Function

The Endocrine or Hormonal System influences the growth, ageing, metabolism (chemical activity within the body), natural immunity and the activity of involuntary muscles such as the heart/lungs/kidneys. The Endocrine System plays a vital part in the reproductive systems in both Stallions and Mares.

The horse has absolutely no control over the release of hormones into his system.
