Is it advisable / possible to use frozen semen AI on a maiden 3yr old?? I have heard that it is better to let them have a natural breeding first time around to ensure that they can produce a live foal? The semen was collected and frozen in the States about 7.5 yrs ago and I was wondering if the extender used at the time could possibly introduce pathogens into the uterus thereby causing future conception problems? The straws I have seen recently are a lot smaller than these particular ones which are 5mls and I believe the extender has been modified.
