Detailed histological and histochemical observations were recorded on corpus and cornuae of uteri obtained from 15 healthy Gaddi goat {Prepubertal (4), pubertal follicular group (4), pubertal luteal group (4), senile group (3)}. The endometrial thickness and epithelial height was maximum in luteal group. Unlike other animals chromatophores and elastic elements were not observed in Gaddi goat uteri. But mast cells were frequently recorded in pubertal follicular and luteal phases. However, absent in prepubertal and senile groups. Myometrium and perimetrium showed varied Frequency intensity for these constituents. The endo-myo and perimetrial thickness in senile group was due to fibrosis. Uterine epithelium was strongly postive for carbohydrates and bound lipids.
