Preferred phantom??

Which phantom do you prefer? The one with the hole in the middle (where the AV sits IN the phantom) , or the one without? TIA

Most stallions tend to prefer the one with the hole in it, but most repro vets tend to prefer the other kind as it is more cost effective This is my experience with it anyhow. If I had my own set up, I would buy the one with the hole in it as it's more of a natural position for the stallion to be in for breeding. With the other kind they have to be on a bit of an angle to breed, and I find that sometimes (especially if young and excited) they tend to 'bang' their penis or their knees on the phantom trying for a better position.

Sorry but what is a phantom?

It is what you'd use for the stallion to 'jump on' for collecting semen for Aritificial insemination. (like a fake mare if you'd like!) They resemble a pommel horse in gymnastics....
