Hello
I hoping some of you guys may be able to give me some advice/tips on getting a young stallion to breed properly.

'Sam' is a 5yo part arab, who has done some collections for AI last season and covered 1 mare naturally. He then developed an infection inside the penis which we treated. It was obvious from his behaviour that he was having discomfort ejaculating due to this infection and he therefore stopped ejaculating altogether. Unfortunately we didn't detect he even had an infection until it was a raging one as everything else seemed normal. He was scoped some time after treatment and everything was clear, but unfortunately we had no luck collecting him as he would not ejaculate. He has had blood tests to try to pick up anything abnormal and has been given a perfectly clean bill of health from excellent repro vets.

It seems now that he is probably associating ejaculating with pain, although now he is free from infection, is very fit and healthy. I have bred three mares so far, all chosen as they are very quiet and stand perfectly still and are quite tolerant with young, clumsy boys. I have used bute each time prior to covering to try and encourage him to ejaculate.

I have tried uphill, downhill, hard teasing him before covering, minimal teasing before covering, surprising him with a mare all sorts of things.... now we are at total frustration point. He is a gem to manage, very easy going and well mannered, has no problems with libido etc. He paddock/yard situation is ideal for him and is seems very content.

Can anyone please help me with some new techniques?????? He mounts the mare with no problem, once up he does dance around a bit but generally has the right idea, then he has a little squeal and slides of. His penis is flanged but does not lose the erection. He can jump the mare as many times as he likes until he is exhausted. We cant even get an ejaculation from collecting him now. I know that he is not ejaculating at the most we get pre-ejaculate, and we are on 2nd cycle with 2mares and 3rd with the other... and no pregnancies. Mares are great reproductively with excellent histories aged from 5 - 10yrs.

Thanks in advance

You would probably benefit from discussing the use of diazepam (Valium) on the stallion prior to breeding with your veterinarian. It has the ability of short-term amnesic impact, as well as being an antianxiety agent. If you can once get him over the ejaculatory failure point to where he realises it no longer hurts to ejaculate, assuming there is no physical blockage or other unidentified issue, you will probably be fine.
