My mare is being breed for the first time this spring through AI. The stallion is located several states away. With the semen being shipped and my mare being 8 years old and a maiden what are the possibilites of her conceiving? Im not sure if it will be shipped cooled or frozen. Which one do you think would allow for better motility? Is there anything that can be done to improve my mares chances?

Thanks you

These are all questions that have no one answer, and can be impacted tremendously by variables. For example:

what are the possibilites of her conceiving?

Well... how competent is the vet or person that is doing the inseminating? How competent are the people collecting and processing the semen? How did the mare's breeding soundness examination look? etc. etc.

...shipped cooled or frozen. Which one do you think would allow for better motility?

Typically cooled will offer better motility, but not always. And that doesn't really matter anyway, as motility is not positively correlated to fertility, and it's not the % motility that matters (even if it were correlated), but the numbers of fertile sperm present...

As far as improving your chances - read the applicable articles in the articles section of this web site, which should help.
