SO, I splurged and bout a French inra av. I went ahead and purchased the disposable liners and the latex liners. My question is this...if you were to use the latex liners to collect with, what the heck to you attach your bottle to? It seems as though the cone end of the AV is very small and would never fit over a playtex bottle end.

I already read the article that is posted on this site and know how to attach it with the disposable liners, but I would like to be prepared to do it the other way too.

First off... we collect a lot of different stallions every year, and always use a disposable liner, so our thin latex liner never gets used... :-) Having said that, if you do decide to use it (and why would you??? It's a lot of work to clean it and you run risks of cross-contamination from stallion to stallion :-)) what you can do is take a baby bottle (we use Playtex bottles as they have a wider neck and no bottom making it easier to check if the stallion has ejaculated - make sure to put a disposable bottle liner in there first though - it's bad if you don't!!!! ) and then using a rubber band (or two if you're nervous!) secure the distal end of the latex liner tightly around the outside of the bottle opening. You will lose a little semen, but not too much if you have it set up right.

I am struggling with this AV. I know it's the user and not anything else! What the problem I am having is I use the latex liner, then put a disposable one on top of it with a bottle and filter connected to the bottom of it. The problem I am having is, I think we are putting too much water in it??? When he jumps and we get him in it, the one end of the latex liner is popping off and water is getting everywhere!! I realize I must sound stupid, but I am screwing up somewhere and would love to get some instructions on how to do this right. THANKS!!
