Hi guys

Has anyone used the EBS stallion breeding mount? Im a small stud in Southern Africa and with my repo vet being a 2 hour drive, getting my stallion there for collection is time consuming aswell as very costly. I would like to collect my own stallion but im not keen on hand collection as he is a very big boy and gets quite excited on the phantom and live covering is just not an option for us.

Any input on this breeding mount would be very welcome :)

Are you talking about the "self-service" style mount that has the AV mounted in the end? If so, there are many (including ourselves) that have concerns about the practicality and safety of these types of mounts.

The idea seems good. There are however some potential problems:

  1. If the stallion will not move up the mount far enough for his penis to enter the AV, there is really nothing much that can be done to rectify the situation. With a mount where someone is holding the AV off to one side, if the stallion does not move up, the end of the penis can be "teased" with the AV, encouraging the stallion to move upwards and towards the AV until he is fully engaged with the mount. If the AV is fixed inside the mount, this of course cannot be done.
  2. If the stallion enters the AV but does not thrust, there is little that can be done to encourage the thrusting. If the AV is being handled off to one side of the mount, then it can be "jiggled" or moved in a manner to encourage the stallion to start thrusting. Again, this cannot be done if the AV is fixed within the mount
In our travels around the USA, we have seen quite a few of these self-service mounts, and I would estimate that about 80% of them have the hole at the back end where the AV is placed blocked in, and the semen is collected with the AV held off to the side.

There have also been accidents with self-serve breeding mounts as a result of the stallion either missing the opening of the AV and getting his penis trapped between the outside of the AV and the inside of the opening, or as a result of being unable to remove his penis from the AV after it has become engorged during the ejaculatory process.

If you are in need of a breeding mount and are not too concerned about it looking as though it was made commercially, it is very easy (and cheap) to build one. There are plans and instructions available on our website int he article to be found here.
We're always happy to try and help, but don't forget to check the articles section
of the website too, which has a search engine to help you look for answers!
