    Quite true. Being in the medical field, I can attest to the fact that there are multiple influences that indeed affect male/female ratio and resulting pregnancy.

    Males, both equine and human may produce a significantly higher % of one sex or the other, (sometimes greater than 90%) thereby affecting the odds of one gender over the other. In theory, it is 50/50, but in reality, anomalies always occur, and more frequently than one might think. Uterine environment, penetration depth, sperm count, breeding schedule, and diet are other major factors that do influence gender selection.

    I would suggest talking to a reproduction specialist.
    I bet you get enlightened.
