Don't know, but I imagine if they do they use a phantom, the same as for a regular sized horse. Nobody actually stands around trying to catch the stally's spooge in a cup.

Yes they do, do it. I don't think it's as common as it is in bigger horses though. It's fairly difficult and pricy. One downside too is that supposedly its not worth keeping a collection of semen on hand. Most miniature registries won't allow you to register a foal if the semen used is from a deceased or gelded stud. Which I think is silly.

You could always train the stud to ground collect if you don't use a phantom.

I think they're a bad example. Trying to breed mini zorses? To what purpose? Because it hasn't yet been done?

Sure, let's breed more brightly colored crap for celebrities to turn into pocket pets, and for people who just want something oh sooo 'kyooot'.

Not the point, SR. It was just an example of collecting from a mini stallion, that's all. Didn't mean to strike a nerve ..

I think they do make it for mini, but if not I'd hate to ask what else to use other than a larger one! Poor mini.
