DNA & Leg Health Reports
For the safety of our client’s mares, and our stallion, we breed exclusively through artificial insemination at LowCountry Acres. Our partnering equine reproduction specialist, Dr. Kathryn Sharbrough of Charleston Equine Clinic, provides expert care and guidance throughout the process.
Yes, we ship cooled semen. Upon request, we will collect from our Stallion Monday thru Friday for next-day arrival. Advanced notice of timing and breeding plans is highly recommended in order to best coordinate timely shipping and delivery. Semen orders must be placed no later than 10 am EST the day before planned insemination. There are no Saturday or Sunday collections due to shipping service limitations.
There is no live foal guarantee. If the mare is determined unbred after the initial insemination, the Mare Owner reserves the option to order additional semen and will cover the aforementioned collection, processing and shipping expenses with no additional stud fee. The breeding season closes August 1.
The stud fee covers breeding just one mare, which will be outlined in the Breeding Agreement between LowCountry Acres and the Mare Owner.
Frozen semen available and ready to ship from Performance Equine Vets in Aiken, SC.
On sight fresh semen transfer available, but limited mare service per season. Mare owner is responsible for establishing an account with Charleston Equine Clinic who will perform all ultrasounds, cultures, insemination and other mare health related needs.
