    The mare owner has the recip mare at their barn until the foal is weaned. Then the mare goes back to the recip farm. I am speaking of the condition/treatment at the large recip mare farm I had experience with only.

    Ah, so you get a recipient foal only every two years? The mare is not covered again with a donor embryo after the foal is born?

    Good question.... I'm not altogether sure, but it would appear that way. I never really thought about it and I wasn't there very long to tell you the truth. I was not a fan.

    I can't imagine that.
