Mare Breeding Services

Breeding Your Mare

Mare breeding services include artificial insemination with fresh, shipped-cooled or frozen thawed semen. Services are provided on an out-patient basis (i.e. trailer-in) or inpatient basis (mare housed at Bandalero Ranch for the duration of services). All services are charged before procedure(s).

Dr. Lindholm determines the optimal time of breeding by a transrectal palpation and ultrasound of the mares ovaries. Routine hormone treatments are administered as necessary to bring mares into heat. Dr. Lindholm determines when semen will be needed to bred the mare and handles the shipping of semen directly with stallion station, veterinarian or owner. Veterinarian and mare owner can discuss at time of mare evaluation whether al la carte fees  or purchasing a breeding pre cycle package is more appropriate.
