Mares are welcome to stay at the clinic while going through the AI process.
An ultrasound is performed to observe the uterus and ovaries. Samples are taken to perform cultures, cytologies, and hormone assays.
Mares are palpated as necessary to keep track where they are in their cycle to make sure that semen, whether cooled or frozen, is inseminated at the most optimal time for the best chance at pregnancy.
When the correct time is observed, our highly trained staff will inseminate the mare with the semen, either cooled or frozen.
15 days after insemination, your mare is checked to see if the process was successful. We use the ultrasound to see the fetus which at this point is a very small little cell that will one day grow into your future champion.
If possible, make sure that your mares are properly vaccinated and give boosters 4-6 weeks before foaling.
Pregnant mares should receive their series of Pneumobort K vaccines at 3-5-7-9 months.
If your mare has a caslicks from breeding, make sure to have this removed when you are vaccinating 4-6 weeks before foaling.
