Okay - I have only ever done Live Cover breedings on my mare, except for once many years ago when one was bred with fresh cooled semen from Rio Grande

I am considering some stallions now that are only offered via frozen semen.

What are the major differences? What do I need to be aware of? What are the conception rates with fresh versus frozen and the retention of the pregnancy rates through to term?

We are VERY fortunate in that about 15 minutes up the road, we have access to one of the best repro vets in Canada that is intimately aware of all of the protocols required for inseminating with frozen semen, so no problems there at all and I would probably send the mare there, let them monitor her and inseminate her and do whatever is necessary to make sure that she catches the first time for sure

I know that a lot of people use it and I also know that a lot of people avoid it like the plague ...

What do I need to know before I make the decision to go frozen instead of fresh???

Thanks - as always!
