On June 20, 2003, Shenandoah Miniature Training and Foaling Center , Dr. Brett A. Spencer, DVM and Jeanne McClanahan began a study of Embryo Transfer in the miniature horse.
 
Jeanne McClanahan supplied 3 recipient mares, 1 donor mare, and 1 stallion.  All horses were handled and all procedures were performed at Shenandoah Miniature Training and Foaling Center , by and under the supervision of Dr. Brett A. Spence, DVM. 
 
The first
successful miniature horse embryo transfer was performed on August 28, 2003.  Dr. Brett A. Spencer, DVM flushed a day 9 embryo from donor mare Michigan ’s Golden Shilling.
 
The above donor mare, was bred by live cover (hand bred) on August 17, 18, 19, 2003, at Shenandoah Miniature Training and Foaling Center , to Lil Darlings Cisco Kid.  The resulting embryo was flushed and implanted on August 28, 2003 into the recipient mare Hunt House Farms Rogues Baby Face.
 
The foal resulting from this embryo transfer was born on June 25, 2004 at 9:45 pm under the supervision of Brandy Carpenter at Shenandoah Miniature Training and Foaling Center .  The foal, a colt was examined by Dr. Brett Spencer, DVM and found to be sound, healthy and alert.
 
The foal was registered on July 30, 2004 as Lil Darling Ciscos Money 2 Burn, owned by Jeanne McClanahan.
 
All horses involved in the transfer were DNA tested.  All mares were cultured and infused, if necessary, and a Stallion Evaluation was performed.  All horses involved were under 34" tall.
 
This study is ongoing and developing the guidelines for an effective Embryo Transfer Program for the Miniature Horse.
