Could someone please give me an appx. total cost, minus the "stud" fee, of doing an AI on a mare?

And does it require a vet or a lot of skill to administer the sperm into the mare?

I think it varies ALOT depending on where you live, but in Northwest Arkansas it cost about $350, if your mare is 'clean'. My mare was at the clinic for 4 days and that was $70, the US was $120, HCG was $20. the actual charge for just putting the semen in the mare was $100. My vet also sent the Equitainer back for me so that was $40. BUT, like I said, it varies GREATLY in different regions.

About the requirement of a vet, it does require alot of skill to monitor the mare and time her ovulation. I took a course with Jos, so I technically know how to do it, but depending on the stud fee of the stallion, I probably wouldn't try it myself. In fact, the contract for Shiner said it had to be done by a licensed vet. It all just depends on what you want and how exact you want to be:-)

It sounds like what you paid would be about what some stallions stud fees are. I actually thought it would be more expensive, but maybe here it would be. It certainly gives one a lot more options though!

Thanks much for the info. may your mare/mares take the first time and have beautiful babies for you!
