What has been your experience?
This is a great question! I have not had experience on the mares end with an outside stallion as of yet but most likely will in the future.
We have just frozen our WB Approved Purebred Arabian stallion HG Esquire+ the past week with plans to collect tomorrow and once more to have enough for 25 mares with 4 straws per breeding alotted.
The numbers look great and I expect there not to be any problems. If for any reason a mare owner should have an unforseen issue with semen we ship, frozen or cooled, we will want to make it right. I call that quality customer service and for us that is right at the top of priorities! In fact we have planned to give one breeding away of the frozen at n/c other than the standard shipping, etc. which is all handled by MW Equine. It is yet another testament to how we treat those that we do business with.
If you do decide to go the frozen route, would be great if you would in fact share your experience(s).
Thanks for starting this thread!
