I would never recommend Dr. Ley. 10 frozen doses on three mares , $ 7,000 vet bill + $ 3,000 worth of semen , never an embryo. Brought all 3 mares home , went with a different vet , all 3 caught first try.
If he wrote a book on anything , he appeared to forget about it when breeding my mares ! This is MY experience with him. Never again.
Equine Repro Concepts gets em bred. So far , with the mares I know of , Dr. Dippert is about 90% first time conception
I prefer Dr. Dippert at Equine Reproduction Concepts over anyone. I also like Dr. Del Vinto at APEX equine, if he is available.
Love, love Dr. Vito and Dr. Dippert. They did my ETs this year and were able to get my maiden mare pregnant on one dose, harvest 2 embryos (double ovulation), and ship them to Ohio where they were successfully implanted into recipient mares and are doing well past 60 days. The mare is only 4, had just been imported, is in full training, and had changed barns 5 times in 3 weeks when she was bred (i.e., not ideal conditions to promote fertility).
And Dr. Dippert is one of the only vets in this area who is successfully freezing embryos.

Ellen Stephens with Laurel Inc. She is just amazing and her facilities are gorgeous. Got my maiden mare in foal no problems on the 1st try. very proactive and keeps even the most paranoid owners (like myself) in the know and assured with the process.
