I have just recently found out that a mare I have had for about 6 years can not carry a foal. She has to small of a uterus to carry a foal full term without loosing the foal. i really would like a foal from this certain mare because of the breeding she has in her plus the temperment she has. I am wondering if anyone could tell me more about embryo transplant. Like what is involved and how much it could possibly cost? What is needed to acheive a bred mare? stuff like that. I have a mare that could be a sergeant mare for the mare that can not have the foal. I am just wondering how to go about all of this to successfully have a foal from the mare who can not carry the foal.

If there is anyone who can tell me how to do this and what I need to sucessfully have a foal. It is greatly appericated.
Thank you!

I can't help you on the questions, but do have one of my own. Why would you want to breed this mare? Do you know for sure that this is not a trait she will pass on? It would be pretty bad if you got a filly foal from her that had the same exact problem. Breeding and temperment is not a reason to get a foal from her if she is going to pass on this bad conformationally fault. There are LOTS of horses out there with excellent breeding, temperment, and conformation...maybe you should look into using one of those mares?

First, there is no way of pinning down an exact number as to what this will cost. Every mare is different.
I will share my experience with you:
After discusion with my vet, I opted to use a Reciept Mare Facillity in Florida to obtain a reciept mare. Good thing I did, will explain later. The cost to lease that mare was 3,200. There was a fee ($350 approc)to surgicaly implant the embryo in the reciep mare. I have to pay 16 dollars per day that the mare is still at that facilty past her 21st day in foal. And I have to pay to have her hauled home. The mare also has to be on Regumate until her 60th day, so there will be some cost involved in that aswell (about $5/day) and then the usual vet cost associated with a regular pregnancy.
Now for the donor mare expenses. The first breeding and flush resulted in no embryo. The cost of that inluding board was close to $1,000.
The next breeding and flush resulted in twin enbryos (this is where it was a good thing to have opted to use a recep mare facility. I had a mare I could have used as a recep, however only one. Recep mare and Donor mares MUST be cycling together). The costs of that including boarding again was $1,500. That also included preparing the embryos for shiping and shipping hem to the recep farm(Same day). So, go back to the top and double the recep mare costs. Hope this helps.
I have another mare who has serval times been confirmed in foal at 16 days and by her 30 day she slips.
She was breed Friday and I am having her flushed next Friday. I will keep you posted on that status. I am hoping that this will allow this mare to have a foal, she has good bloodlines and was my show mare when I was a kid. She is 14 and maiden. I have tried for 3 seasons to get her in foal with no luck. Tried everything, different stallions, Regumate, cultures, swabs, etc. This mare is so tied of being poked and prodded. Hopefully the flush will result in an embryo. If not, I will flush her one more time, and if not successfull, then I give up.
If an embryo is recovered, it is important with this mare to know how the embryo graded. I am afraid that this mare may have inferior embryo's that can not be carried to term by her or any other mare. Hope this is not the case with your mare, but you have to do a flush and transfer to find out.

Yes this information has helped alot. Its not that my mare is not fertile, she has to small of a uterus to carry a foal full term without loosing the foal. It also could be fatal for her to carry a foal full term with the way her uterus is.
