We understand that for some breeders, the thoughts of artificial insemination or the use of chilled or frozen semen can seem a daunting task. We are very happy to help any breeder access the semen of the stallion they wish to use and we too want your mare to go in foal as easily as possible. We are as transparent and honest in our appraisal of semen quality and stallion fertility so that breeders can make an informed discussion. Having specialised in the area of equine reproduction, Emma-Rose is always happy to discuss the details of your mare and to suggest suitable stallion options to achieve a pregnancy. If you are a seasoned breeder considering embryo transfer and/or ICSI either in Ireland or abroad, we can also offer advice and are happy to help in any way that we can. If there is a stallion who you would like to use but do not find him in our brochure or website, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we may be still able to help.
