Ah yes, definitely brings back memories of working at the university's stud barn, hopefully some day I can find work in this field seeing that I spent a fair deal of time in college studying and training in this :)

Well, everyone except the one older woman in the back are students in a reproduction class that watch us collect them. XD They also help hold him up and handle the AV (he's clumsy and tends to...slide off the phantom. *cough*).

hmmm... always wondered why people like touching the males parts. I just thought they were perverts. Horses are quite capable of mounting things given the right conditions. Hope that don't sound wrong lol.

Yes, but we made the mistake of not supporting our stud Leo properly when we were training him to the phantom, and he slid off and hurt himself, so now we can only use him for live cover because he's scared of the phantom. It's sad. XD The handling is also for sanitation; you have to rinse the sand and dirt off the penis after each mounting and teasing so it dosn't contaminate the semen sample. Someone also usually stands next to the person holding the AV so they don't get kicked in the head, too. *cough* At first I thought it was really weird to have so many people involved in the process, but it's kind of necessary. X3

Question, what did he have to do this for? Is it training or something? :XD:

We collect some of our stallions using the phantom like this for the purpose of collecting their semen for use in artificial insemination. We'll tease Mouse here up to a mare so that he gets an erection, rinse him off, and then lead him to the phantom (the "dummy mare"). He's been trained to mount it, and then we collect him using an artificial vagina. It just makes the process a lot safer and more sanitary than live cover, and it's the only way we can breed some of our more aggressive mares who won't accept a stallion. X3 And it's fast (live cover can take many mountings to get the job done), and Mouse doesn't mind it; he gets excited just seeing the phantom now. X'D

:XD:
it does sound much safer. especially if you have taller or agressive mares eh? Or i guess nothing goes wrong ri? I suppose he still has fun :D
I heard you can't do that with uhh what i think it's if you have thoroughbreds that uh babies will end up racing one day?

Yeah, that's right; you can't register foals that are conceived with artificial insemination with the Jockey Club, and you have to have witnesses sign the registration papers testifying that they saw the live cover in progress, just to ensure the identity of the stud. X3 Which I think is kind of dumb, since it would sure be a lot safer and save them a lot on insurance. >_> Not to mention that if you could use embryo transfer, the mares could continue to race while still "producing" offspring. XD
