When breeding an older mare or one with delayed uterine clearance, or a tight cervix it is often recomended to flush them and to give them oxytocin in order to reduce the post breeding inflamation.

My question is: if you are going to flush the mare and give her oxytocin anyway does it matter if you use frozen or cooled semen?

Is the reaction to the frozen semen much worst that you would do something different then with normally cooled ship semen?

I am trying to descide if I should breed my mare with frozen or with cooled. In any case we will be monitoring for post breeding reaction and be ready to flush and follow up with oxytocin.

The answer to your question is somewhat mare dependent. Some mares will have a significantly greater inflammatory response to frozen semen than cooled, while with most there is little or no difference. If you are aware of the risk then you can monitor for it and be prepared to treat with a lavage, so the end result is most likely to be a need for a little more management, but if the frozen semen may produce a better quality foal then the risk is probably worth it.
