ICSI

Below you find the list of our mares and the available embryos.

ICSI Possibilities

After years of enthusiastic breeding and following up on the sport we have noticed how quickly everything is evolving. Just watch a video from just 10 years ago… We expect horses to be faster and more careful as the obstacle material gets lighter and higher.

We are therefore very aware that breeding a future Grand Prix horse will become increasingly difficult because these days good is not good enough anymore. That is why we have put together a very selective group of broodmares which, according to our standards, are more than worthy to apply the renewed ICSI technique.

What does ICSI mean?

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection or ICSI is an innovative technique of medically assisted reproduction in which one sperm is inserted directly into an egg, ie an artificial fertilization.

This technique offers the opportunity to cross-breed the genes of top horses. For example, semen from exclusive stallions is used in combination with the best mare bloodlines in the world. The resulting embryo is then frozen and later placed in a surrogate mare.

Implantation in surrogate mare

We work closely with a specialized center where the frozen embryos can be scheduled in a surrogate mare. We offer the follow-up of this service on request.

Insurance

It is possible to have your embryo insured via Catherine de Buyl Horse Insurance. This insurance covers the pregnancy guarantee, abortion and mortality risk up to 120 days after birth. We can offer the start-up of this service on request.

Rearing

As soon as the recipient mare is pregnant for 45 days, you have the choice of picking up the mare or place it for rearing with us. Our rearing options offer both foaling and rearing the first years of life.

Purchase possibilities

When purchasing ICSI embryos we offer you the following options:

  • Option 1: You pay a one-time purchase amount for the frozen embryo. With this option you have the possibility to have the embryo implanted and monitored by us. Another possibility is to send the embryo to your desired location. You also have the option, without obligation, to extend this option with an insurance.
  • Option 2: You pay the purchase amount of the frozen embryo in two parts. With this option you are obliged to have the embryo implanted and monitored by us. All costs of implantation are included in the price, the rent of the broodmare is not included. You also have the option, without obligation, to extend this option with an insurance.
  • Option 3: You pay a one-time purchase amount for the implanted embryo in a broodmare of at least 45 days gestation. Price only upon request . This option is only available with some combinations. You also have the option, without obligation, to extend this option with an insurance.
