I have a mare that I'd like to breed but at the same time keep her in competition. I recall an article somewhere that mentioned that the flushing process can be pretty harsh and could cause the donor mare to be unable to carry a foal herself in the future. Also at a recent inspection I asked one of the judges his opinion for possible stallion prospects for her type and brought up the question for embryo transfer. He also mentioned that ET is "very hard" on the mare. Due to the overall schedule, I did not have time to discuss further with him. Does anyone know about this? Thanks in advance!

Rubbish! :-)

Repeated flushings - i.e. breed, flush 7 days after ovulation, short cycle, breed again, flush again 7 days after ovulation, then repeat again multiple times in the same season - have been suggested as reducing future pregnancy rates somewhat. It is important to note however that the ability and efficacy of the technician performing the flushes may well have a direct impact - lack of sterile technique will certainly result in damage.

A single flush (or even 2 or 3 flushes in a season) have not been seen to reduce subsequent fertility as long as the sterility aspect is respected.

I have an Andalusian mare who will be 20 next year and has carried foals in the past. She has severe melanoma's on her outside reproductive tract (none internal). I realize her age is a downfall, but I would very much like a foal out of her and am prepared to go ahead with the costs as I feel she is an exceptional example of the breed.

Aside from her I have 2 or 3 mares that could be recipients, each has carried a foal in the past and are mid aged (7-12)...

Someone mentioned a clinic is So Cal that kept 200 or so recipient mares around...would this be a better course of action rather than to try to have my 2 or 3 mares cycling at the same time?

Cost is sort of an issue, but not really...i.e. I don't want to spend $10k but am willing to do what it takes (aside from spending $10k)...
