    No. Boleem's semen is stored at Select Breeders' Service, who collected and froze him.

    The MO pays for the tank deposit for the season (just like an Equitainer for fresh cooled) for up to 3 shipments for the breeding season. It had to be returned within 10 days of shipping.

    Each heat cycle we would send the tank with the # of straws needed for that cycle. It was not transferred to a vet clinic. It was ready for the vet on site.

    Then they would send it back to SBS (with any unused straws). We would earmark those straws for that owner should they need another shipment.

    Once the mare was confirmed in foal, the deposit was refunded.

    That said, this happened only once as all of the mares he bred to settled with the first shipment, most often with straws coming back. Additional shipments only happened with one mare, as I recall. She was an older, foundered mare that it turns out also had major reprodutive issues.

    Basically, under the LFG, I treat the contract just like one would do with fresh cooled. Up to 3 shipments per season. Container deposit is much higher $750, but it was just a deposit so it was refunded in full.

    But that was in the "olden days"...there was no such thing as a "dry shipper", nor were any vet clinics able to store frozen semen.

    I haven't promoted Boleem or any of my stallions in the last 5 years due to caregiving an elderly parent who pass last winter. So I'm getting back into it. Though I have sold frozen by the dose during this time. I really like giving a MO the option of a LFG, though.

    Thanks for the comments.
    Is Fabriano's good ennough to split dose?

    He's an oldy but a goody. He hasn't been mentioned here, since I have two doses of him I'm wondering if there has been pregnancies on a partial dose.

    Again- looking at minimizing the amount of irritant I put in this mare's uterus: not trying to get rich on this approach (ha! that's a funny one!)
