What is embryo transfer and what are the benefits?
Embryo transfer (ET) is essentially a surrogate pregnancy. A donor mare is inseminated, but instead of carrying the pregnancy herself, the embryo is flushed from her uterus and implanted into a recipient mare, who then carries the pregnancy to term and delivers the foal. The main advantage of ET is that it allows the production of increased numbers of high quality foals with excellent bloodlines, with minimal disturbance to the sports careers of the biological parents.
