What are your thoughts on embryo transfer?

I found this interesting article:

I have one and have no problems with them. Even been in talks about selling a few out of my mares. Just need the timing to be correct for that as I am using the mares and such.

It is a great way to get more quality foals on the ground out of some really great mares.

I like it especially if you're showing or if the mare is too old or she can't carry to term. It's really simple if you ever see it done. The real down side is the cost of the transfer and how many times you have to repeat if it's unsuccessful. They say ages 3-8 years old are good canidates for recipiants. Sorry about spelling. Had a long night. One day id like to try a transfer but only if she's well worth my cash.

I havent heard of any problems with them. And for the foals. If my memory is correct. I think There were full sibblings (embro transfer) that made it at least to the semis in the ncha futurity last year.

The only issue I have heard of is that registries are not as up to date as they could be on it. I have heard people question how you register two foals out of the same dam, when they are not twins. Otherwise, I think its something that will develop over the next few years and could produce some interesting results. I wonder if in 10-15 years it will be as common as AI is now.

ETs have been around for about 40 years now and AQHA has recognized multiples for about 10 years.

ET is getting more and more common now days. In warmbloods, we are seeing more and more ET foals out of very successful performance mares. It allows highly valuable, imported mares to be bred while still competing, with very minimal risk to her health as oposed to a pregnancy where the mare would be unable to compete for a significant period of time, and her health and life may be at risk. For mares worth in excess of $100k, this is definitely the way to go!

Thats why I think it's a great idea and I think that it gives breeders a chance to show off there mares.
