Hello all - I am completely new to the prospect/idea of breeding - please excuse my ignorance.
I own a mare that I absolutely adore. For various reasons, I don’t want to take her out of work to breed, but I would love to have the option of having her baby one day. But emphasis on “one day” - I don’t want to have a foal on my hands in the immediate future.
So question for the experts: does anyone have experience retrieving a mare’s eggs and then storing them for a long period of time - let’s say several years - before insemination? Would this be better with an embryo as opposed to eggs?
Thanks in advance!
