BREEDING SERVICES
BREEDING

Our custom designed breeding facilities include a bright, spacious barn. Large foaling boxes with Supersoft Equimats, collection phantom and insemination stocks, laboratory and equipment outfit our complete breeding centre. Fresh, chilled and artificial insemination procedures are available in addition to embryo transfer. It is possible to "design" your baby choosing one of our mares and stallion or providing your own parents. We ship semen as well as accommodate mares sent to us for breeding, with or without foals at foot. Your future foal is only limited by your imagination! Hanoverian offspring are evaluated and graded at our annual inspection, personally conducted by Dr. Christmann from the Hanoverian Verband, Verden, Germany. Full foaling facilities are available.


EMBRYO TRANSFER PROGRAM

You can now have the best of both worlds - have a foal from your mare and continue her ridden career without interuption. Embryo transfer is also a wonderful option for mares where pregnancy presents health risks, is difficult to carry to term or where multiple births are desired (not necessarily all from the same stallion!)

Dreamcatcher Meadows has a growing reputation for providing full embryo transfer services in addition to its traditional breeding program. Several articles have featured our work and explain the process. (See the following under the link News - Current)


RECIPIENTS

The recipient mare that will carry your foal is a very important part of the successful ET equation. We primarily use thoroughbreds that are

adopted from the New Stride Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, giving them a new career and eutopian life as surrogate mothers.
