Embryo Transfer
Embryo Transfer is an assisted reproductive technology that allows a breeder to flush embryos from a valuable mare and transfer them into recipient mares that carry the pregnancy and raise the foal until weaning.

The Advantages of Embryo Transfer
* A donor mare can continue to compete while producing foals.
* A donor mare can produce several foals per year.
* Mares that are unable to carry a foal due to an injury can produce foals.

We have utilized these advanced reproductive technologies in our breeding program.
