Why Use AI

Why use Artificial Insemination
From our own experiences of using A.I the benefits that we have found include.
Blaenllain Doodleba is tested, and is clear from CEM & EVA. These are both highly contagious
STD.
Although all our mares are tested and clear from CEM & EVA it was our choice to have them
tested rather than compulsory. A growing amount of stallion owners require your vet to have
tested you mare to be clear from CEM & EVA, before going to stud for natural covering.
Your valuable mare and possibly young foal wont have to travel from your home, your own vet
should be able to inseminate your mare. This is less stressful for mares and foals and worried
owners.
You will not have to arrange and pay for transportation to and from stud, quite often mares stay
at stud for up to 6 weeks to make sure she’s held to the stallion. The keep & grooms fees as
well as the transport can soon add up a large bill separate to the stud fee.
As your mare doesn’t have to leave your yard, she has less chance of injury and disease.
Can help reduce the risk of mares reabsorbing due to stress & infection.
Suitable for mares with back injuries, that can’t take the weight of a stallion.
No risk of the stallion picking up an STD, and possibly passing it on to mares he’s covered.
Reduces the risk of injury to all horses and handlers.
All the semen is evaluated; with natural covering it is very difficult to assess the quality of the
semen. With AI as all the semen is evaluated you will have a very good idea as to how good the
sample is that you are inseminating into your mare.
You can send your mare to a specialised yard for the insemination.
We can put you in touch with a yard very local to us
Talgrwn Stud Services
. The yard is
owned & run by Gwenan & Richard Thomas (MRCVS), who are specialising in A.I on the mares
side. Your mare can go and stay at their yard & they can take care of any scanning or drugs that
your mare might need. They will also be on hand to scan your mare to see when she is about to
ovulate. I will then be able to take the semen straight over to them, for insemination. This
could be a big advantage for mares that might be difficult to get in foal, and 1
st
time owners to
A.I.
We went to visit the yard before sending Doodle our own mare and month old foal there. From
our own experience we found the yard to be very professional, relaxed, knowledgeable and
helpful, with easy access and turning areas. Doodle who is not overly keen on staying away
from people she knows, happily stayed there with her foal for 5 days while she was inseminated.
She appeared to totally enjoy her stay and came home as relaxed and contented as when she
went. Personally I wouldn’t hesitate to send my own mare and young foal there again.
One of Bart’s Mares. (Lady)
One of the mares we inseminated last year was a 17 y. o maiden Mare. Due to her age the
linings of her vagina and cervix could be thinner and more delicate than a younger mare. With
natural covering she could have had these linings damaged and therefore might then increase
the risk of infection. This would have been very unpleasant for the mare and possibly affect her
fertility and the owner would have had a vets bill. Also due to her age she didn’t have the added
stress of a stallion ‘s weight on her back while been covered. The mare was inseminated just the
once with Bart’s sperm. She was scanned in foal and had her baby in June. This particular mare
can get very stressed and upset, which possibly wouldn’t have helped her to conceive with a
natural covering. As she was done using A I she remained relaxed and calm throughout.

Press Coverage

‘BART has a lot to offer anyone wanting to breed a quality competition horse from their mare’ , Laura Pyke of THE ARABIAN MAGAZINE (Dec 2010)

In a recent issue of ‘The Arabian Magazine’ Stallion/Paris Issue – December 2010 www.thearabianmagazine.com Bart is one of four stallions being featured, the opening paragraph is

There is so many different types of part-bred Arabian stallions out there choosing the right one to compliment your mare in body, mind and ability can seem a little daunting.As British sports pony breeding goes from strength to strength, I take time to chat to owners of some of the younger and less-trumpeted sires available at stud in 2011. They share news of their competitive results this season and their hopes for the future

Words by Laura Pyke
The Arabian Magazine
Article 2010

Moving up a size, Blaenllain Doodleba is a 14.3hh half Arab show hunter type also registered part-bred Welsh; the remainder of his pedigree is made up of Thoroughbred and Riding Pony blood. Home-bred by Mandy Jones of Lampeter, he is as much a family pony as he is a show horse.
‘Bart’ as he is affectionately known was a product of unusual circumstance. As Foot and Mouth disease struck in 2001the showing season was decimated. Mandy and her sister Tina took the opportunity to breed from their beloved competition mare Blaenllain Doodleberry and she was put in foal to desert marathon winner Ali Nebal (Al Hakkim x Nebula). When the colt arrived the sisters thought some showing would be good for his general education and so mare and foal were entered at the Centenary International show where both took red rosettes. Young Bart also took the junior male championship award and secured his first WPCS gold medal. Mandy was certain she had a star on her hands and chose another Arabian suitor, the desert marathon winner Phariz (Nazarene x Pharissa) for Doodleberry the following year. The resulting second part-bred colt foal also proved a winner, taking the part-bred Welsh championship at the Royal Welsh show as a foal.
With Tina on the lead Bart took numerous other titles as a junior and then as a stallion. Mandy is the jockey and backed Bart at home; he has since enjoyed several ridden outings to win and take championships. He won a WPCS performance medal as section champion at his first show as a four year old. He also enjoys dressage and jump schooling at home and riding club. Mandy has somehow fitted all this in with starting a family, running the stud, freelance teaching and showing the youngsters. She reveals,

Bart’s laid back character has been so important as he can cope with gaps in his training really well. We never have to go over old ground and he’s always accepting. He loves nothing more than human attention, which is perfect as my three year old son is very keen to get involved with the horses. I know he is safe with Bart.

My son loves grooming and sitting on Bart and it’s clear to see that he loves my son in return. He is the ultimate family all rounder; we all have fun and success with him, even my non-horsey partner.He has the most genuine nature and it’s just a bonus that he is a stallion happy to live a full life and gift his best qualities to his progeny

“Bart’s progeny are doing very well in the show ring too, already taking championships and supreme titles at regional and county level as show hunter ponies, riding ponies, part-bred Arab and part-bred Welsh. His first crop of foals, born in 2007, and are due out under saddle for the 2011 season. They all seem to have inherited his good looks and trainability so we are excited for next year.”

“We are working towards putting him forward for grading with the National Stallion Association in the hope of becoming a premium stallion with the Arab Horse Society. In the meantime we keep enjoying him and seeing his stock develop. We have made him available by AI too as we think he has a lot to offer to anyone wanting to breed a quality competition horse from their mare.”
