At Charles Ranch Equine, we use the process of equine embryo transfer. It is a safe procedure in equine reproduction which involves the collection and transfer of a fertilized egg, or embryo, from a donor mare to a synchronized recipient mare. The donor mare can be bred via artificial insemination using fresh, cooled or frozen semen, or live covered. The breeding of the mare is identical to breeding mares destined to carry their own foal. The recipient then carries to term and delivers.
To ensure the best chance of success, we offer full board for your mare. We also have a large herd of recipient mares. This allows us to make sure the recipient mares are completely synchronized with the donor, resulting in a higher chance of a positive result.
