$10 per day for pasture board. This is general turnout for racehorse layups, yearlings and mares confirmed pregnant.
Stall Board Options:
$15 per day for mares in for reproductive work.
$20 per day for mare and foal.
Both options include the extra labour involved with reproductive exams, farrier visits, vaccinations and dewormings.
All board includes regular turnout with access to run in shelters, hay or haylage and grain as required. Specialized supplements can be fed if requested by the owner.
Reproductive services are individually catered to any breed of mare. Routine services include teasing and observation for signs of heat, rectal palpations, ultrasounds, and breeding of normal mares. Diagnostic work ups of mares with reproductive issues can be done via my work at the Montague Veterinary Clinic.
Insemination can include fresh, cooled or frozen semen. Arrangements can be made to pick up semen from any local delivery points.
If required post insemination therapy can include utero-tonics, uterine lavage and intra-uterine antibiotics.
One of the novel services gaining interest in breeding circles is embryo transfer and the requirement for recipient mares. Embryo transfer candidates have included mares still in active competition to the most common cases that are older mares which are no longer able carry their own foal or that are at high risk of losing their own pregnancies.
Here at Linden Lane Farms we can connect you to a recipient mare and all management services that are involved in embryo transfers. Recipient mares can be provided by the owner or arrangements can be made through Linden Lane Farms. At the owners request recipient mares can be boarded long term and foaled out on premises.
