Any success stories with embryo transfer on older mare?
I've talked to my vet about AIing my 22 year old never before bred heart horse and then transfering the embryo to a recipient mare. He says it's possible, but that I shouldn't get my hopes up too high. We're planning on doing some tests next week to get a better idea of the likelyhood of her being able to fertilize the egg before the embryo transfer.
Does anyone have a success story or any words of wisdom?
I was warned by all studies and many vets that the success rate was only 30% for the older mare (19)Even tho I was well informed it still gutted me when we didn't get an embryo...over 400 years of pedigree & a little mini of the horse of my lifetime lost.
