I'm fixing to have my vet come to the farm and do an Embryo Transfer with one of my mares. My vet is going to teach me as we go through this incase I might decide to do this myself some day. In the mean time I have the equipment sitting here waiting on cultures and such to come back. I was looking at this Disposable Insemination gun and trying to figure out how the thing works. Am I correct in assuming the straw goes down the inside tube of the gun, then the metal rod pushes on the cotton plunger in the straw to expel the embryo? If that's the case would there not be a risk of the embryo getting caught on the lip that the straw is sitting over on the inside of the gun? That lip would be on the inside of the straw where the embryo flows past correct?
