I am a seasoned breeder that has 2 miniature Stallions that I would like to offer AI with..
I am very creative, and would like to do as much as possible myself to make this happen.
Can anyone give me advise about how to do this without it costing me an arm and a leg? I dont mind paying a finger and a toe, but it has to be doable by now in todays technology.. If you have any knowledge in this area, and can share with me in how to get started, I would so appreciate it.

There are a variety of articles in the articles section of this web site about setting up for and shipping semen. There would not be any significant difference in the requirements between shipping semen from a full sized or miniature horse.

What do you think my costs might be to collect from one of my stallions and ship safely to her. I am wanting to know only aproximate costs.. Of course I am wanting to do this as feesabe as possible. Thanks again!

The approximate costs are laid out in the article in our articles section entitled "The Costs Of Setting Up A Laboratory For Semen Collection And Processing". Note that the article was originally written for a Canadian publication, so prices are given in Cdn$.

If you have only one customer, it would be cheaper to have the stallion collected at a facility that specializes in semen collection and shipment.

Thank you Jos, I am starting to think maybe for shipping to one person in New Jersey, I should find some one in my area (Arizona) that is set up for collecting/freezing, and shipping if possible..
Do you know of some place (not necessarily a vet), in my state that offers this service at hopefully a reasonable rate?
