Generally speaking, would it be ok to try frozen semen first up with a rising 4 yr old maiden WB mare??? From what I understand a young maiden mare should be a good FS candidate compared to an older maiden mare who I have heard numerous vets suggest you only try chilled or fresh semen first up. I have a WB mare who is rising 4 that we want to put in foal. I would like to try frozen just so we have a large selection to pick from & so that I can still go back to the local chilled semen stallions later down the track when we want to try an ET with the mare.

So should it be worth trying frozen first up with this mare? I'm probably just a bit cautious about being adventurous by trying frozen probably because I know a few people who have tried to breed mares (admittedly old mares with problems) and had endless dramas... The mare is in really good condition & we'll send her to a really good Repro vet who has a good reputation & that's all she does is AI work so I'm hoping with a bit of luck it all should work when the time comes!...

You will run into some people that tell you not to use a maiden mare for frozen semen, but there is no research evidence that I am aware of that suggests that one should not, and certainly we are more than happy when someone sends us a maiden mare for frozen semen work, as it means that we have a pristine uterus to work with! :-)

The little that I'm involved with repro, I have seen a maiden mare get in foal first try with frozen semen. Good luck!
