Mare ManagementMare Management & Breeding Services

We are experts in reproduction and are up to date on the latest procedures for all types of breeding, including live cover, artificial insemination and deep horn frozen insemination. We tease daily and utilize ultrasound to pinpoint ideal insemination timing for your mare. We maintain contact with the stallion management team to assure timely delivery of semen. We evaluate all shipments of semen that we receive for your mare and provide you with timely information on your mare’s breeding status.

We also offer mare owners the opportunity to maximize genetic contribution by embryo transfer to a recipient mare. Additionally, we can collect and freeze oocytes on your valuable producers and performers.

We also provide foaling services including night watch, security cameras and Foal Alert™, with foalings attended by Dr. Stanton and her staff with over 30 years of experience in welcoming new arrivals. We have a limited number of space available for this service, so please contact us to reserve a stall.

Problem mare services

Mares may have difficulty becoming pregnant or maintaining pregnancies for a variety of reasons. It is important to conduct a good physical examination with a whole horse approach to establishing health for fertility and success in producing foals.

We offer advanced diagnostic techniques such as low volume culture and cytology, uterine biopsy, hysteroscopy (uterine endoscopy), and color doppler ultrasonography. There are many advances in the treatment of problem mares and endometritis that we can now offer our clients.

Endoscopic Oviduct Flushing

Oviductal Papilla
This is the structure that the sperm must enter in the uterus in order to fertilize the egg (oocyte). This may become blocked preventing pregnancy from occurring and may be cleared with an endoscopic procedure.

Accumulation of protein and other materials over time may block the oviducts of mares which results in infertility. A new oviductal flushing technique via endoscopy has provided a much less invasive means of addressing this problem without surgery. Mares who have not conceived but are not dealing with infection or other observed problems have benefited from this procedure.
