Imagine that you have a really great mare you plan to breed again once she foals. You have recently seen the perfect stallion for this mare at a show in Asheville, North Carolina. Unfortunately, the stallion will be standing this breeding season in California. The expense of shipment and mare care plus concerns for the well-being of the mare and foal make sending the mare to California seem a bad idea. What can you do? Cooled shipped semen may be the answer. With proper management and attention to detail, cooled shipped semen can be used successfully. If either you or the stallion owner try to cut corners, results can be poor.
