Breed Your Mare
Here are some basic guidelines to help you through our breeding process:
STEP 1: Have your mare checked for breeding suitability. It is important for your mares to have a current reproductive exam, testing negative to breeding transmitted diseases and infection. It is a good idea to know before the breeding season begins that the mare you plan to breed is a suitable prospect. Will also help guide mare owners determining the mares ovulation and cycle. Saving you time and money.
STEP 2: Download our Breeding Contract and read thoroughly. Once you have read through our contract and find the terms satisfactory, download our Booking Form and return with the booking fee of $300 per mare. We require the completed Breeding Contract with the remaining $700 of the service fee before the mare is bred.
STEP 3: Breed your mare.
ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION: You will obviously have enlisted the services of a vet well versed in equine artificial breeding to inseminate your mare, so have your vet contact our vet! We use Moore Equine Veterinary Centre, and to save any miss communications, we at McArthur Farms support allowing the veterinarians to confer between themselves and decide when they need semen and shipping. At Moore Equine, Chris Berezowski DVM, DACT, DABVP (Equine) can be contacted at (403) 931-3343 for further advice and pricing. When semen has been ordered, he will contact us and we will endeavour to have the semen and contract details completed.
STEP 4: Congratulations! Your mare should be safely in foal. At this point, we will provide you with registry information for your pending foal. Alernatively, you can decide to wait until the foal is born to save the risk of losing your paperwork in the coming year. Let us know what you prefer and we will be happy to assist in any way we can.
