I'm a bit biased here at Kansas State :P
I'm looking to go into the same thing you are, and one option to consider is what you actually want to accomplish with equine reproduction. You don't NEED a DVM, you can get a Masters and work from there.
Colorado State is usually the first that comes up, but the problem is that as soon as you go, they have you on a "tracking program", meaning your classes are tailored to what you want to work on in the future, I.e. Avian, equine, small animal, etc. Problem with that is it becomes harder to pass your Boards tests after you graduate, because you don't have rounded knowledge.
I love all the professors here, and the Dean is actually a good friends of my grandparents. I work in the hospital right now, and I will ONLY use the college for any work I need with my own horses

NC State has a great vet school and I'm pretty sure they have equine reproductive specialties now too. I love the vet school hospital there, best place ever.

Auburn University in Alabama has a really good one, Mississippi State does too.

I would suggest Colorado State or Texas A&M. Both have really fantastic vet programs.

I LOVE the vet school here at MS State. Before I college I lived fairly close to Texas A&M and while I loved the care we received there, MS STATE TAKES THE CAKE. The vets are reasonable, down to earth and they really work with you. It is a lesser known school but their equine facilities are great,

I have learned a ton from my vet (who is a vet at the vet school) and I am not even a vet student

Ok I'm a bit biased because this is my future school (had to put on hold recently because of medical stuff though :P ) But I love Purdue University in Indiana! They're super easy to work with and even kept my admission and are giving me classes at a local technical college so I can continue on. They're vet school/hospital (whenever I have been) have been compassionate and always gave it their all.

Also they've never hesitated to teach anyone and everyone who walks through their doors and all my vets graduated from them with honors and are phenomenal. The other schools sound good though too!

Two of the vets at my work are from Mississppi State, and they are both wonderful both as vets and as people.

I'm surprised nobody as mentioned UC Davis! I was going to apply to vet school this year, but I have decided to take a ear off between getting my BS and going to vet school.

Good luck with your applications!

Yes, a great vet school.. Six Program Areas :: North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
