How many straws are in one dose of frozen semen? I am breeding my mare to Dream In Gold and I was wondering how many straws were in one dose. Do I have a good chance with Dream In Gold? My email is chiconahorse@yahoo.com. Thanks.

You will have to contact the stallion owners, as the number of straws in an insemination dose will depend upon the size of the straw used, and the post-thaw motility rate. The number can vary anywhere between one straw and about 12!

Also ask what the "first cycle pregnancy rate" is using frozen semen, and how many mares make up that statistic. It's no use to simply hear he has a 100% pregnancy rate if it takes 6 cycles to achieve it, or if there was only one mare bred to obtain that statistic!

Ok, thank you. Is frozen semen good for a maiden mare that is 12 years old?

Assuming that the frozen semen has good fertility, there will probably be few problems outside the ordinary, although some people will argue that maiden mares have a harder time getting pregnant. My personal belief is that this is mare dependent. Check out the article on our web site by Dr. Jonathon Pycock about breeding the older maiden mare, which can be viewed by "clicking" here. Hope it helps.

Thank you. It really helped! I now have a much better understanding.

How many doses do you think I will need if one dose has 8 straws? I am thinking about getting one dose, but I am going to ask my vet as well.
