Artificial insemination is currently a common practice in most breeds of horses. At our Equine Center, we can manage your mare for insemination with fresh, chilled, or frozen semen. Artificial insemination can be intimidating for many people, therefore, we offer a complete service. Once your mare is brought to our facility, she will be managed to optimize her chances of becoming pregnant and maintaining a healthy pregnancy. We will arrange shipment of semen, evaluation of the semen, and inseminate your mare at the proper time
Artificial insemination with frozen semen needs to be placed as close to ovulation as possible. Mares being bred to stallions with frozen semen will have palpation and ultrasound examinations every 6 hours to allow us to accurately predict ovulation.
Mares that have had a history of fertility issues are intensively managed at our facility as they may need to have uterine lavages with subsequent infusions, minimal inseminations and hormonal treatments. These mares are best managed in a clinical setting for proper monitoring.
