Breeding / Sales Prep

Breeding / Sales Prep

Our highly experienced and qualified veterinarian’s target is one early, healthy foal per mare per year and we use the latest technologies to achieve this including utilising modern ultrasound machines.

Mares which are difficult to breed are targeted with the latest and most current therapies, including fertility drugs and laser surgery. Pregnancy can be monitored intensively for conditions such as placentitis. Standing surgical repair of the reproductive tract, biopsy and caesarean section are undertaken where necessary. Artificial insemination (AI), including chilled and frozen techniques, is performed where appropriate.
We offer mare breeding contracts to assist you with budgeting and complimentary phone advice as you require it.
