Reproduction

Over the years we have become known throughout the region for our excellent results and professional care.

At McKinlay & Peters Equine we take pride in our reproductive services. Our business was built largely around reproduction and this specialty continues to be a mainstay of our practice. Our Reproduction Center in Colbert is newly remodeled and updated to better serve our customers and their horses. We have safe, lighted stalls for promoting early cycling in mares, video monitored foaling stalls, secure stallion stalls and turn-out paddocks.

We love mares, and offer exceptional quality reproductive services for them. We utilize the most up-to-date techniques in caring for mares with fertility issues. Year after year, many mare owners return to have their mares artificially inseminated with transported fresh cooled or frozen semen. Our embryo transfer program is second to none in the northwest. Embryo transfers are done for a number of reasons including raising multiple foals from a superior mare in a given year and/or allowing young performance mares to continue their athletic careers. Embryos can be flushed from mares as young as two years of age and as old as they continue to ovulate - into their twenties in many cases. Quality recipient mares are available. We ship and receive cooled embryos to and from other parts of the country. Video monitored foaling stalls are available to foal out your mare.

For stallions, we also offer a wide variety of reproductive services. These include fertility and breeding soundness evaluation, training to the phantom mare for semen collection, shipping cooled semen and semen freezing. We employ the most thorough and stringent test freezing process in the industry and have experienced excellent results. Stallion semen can be frozen and stored indefinitely, preserving valuable genetic material for future use. Frozen semen can be transported potentially anywhere. It may also be used to enable an athletic performance stallion to continue his show career uninterrupted. Storage is available for frozen semen.

We have been favored to stand several great stallions at our facility over the years. Our current resident stallion is two time ABHA World Champion Pleasure Stallion, Dun Goin Steady. Tex, is owned by Duns and Roses Ranch of Post Falls, Idaho.
