Embryo Transfer Program

With our Gypsy Vanner Horse Embryo Program we’ve been able to share the wealth of our great foundation genetics with people throughout the world.  

If you are looking for an affordable option to obtain the Vanner Horse of your dreams, consider our Embryo Transfer Program. We have twenty years of experience with this process and can walk you through the procedure.

Basically, this is how it works —

  • You choose the sire and dam of your foal, subject to our approval of that genetic crossing. 
  • Once you have made your choice, we will breed the mare you’ve chosen to your selected stallion.
  • At the appropriate time (~7 days later) we will flush the embryo and then place it inside the uterus of a recipient mare. 
  • At 60 days post confirmed pregnancy the  mare may be transferred to the location of your choice for her gestation period, which is approximately 11 months.
  • You will be responsible for the transport, prenatal care throughout her pregnancy and any professional foaling service. 
  • You will be responsible for shipping the mare back to Ocala if you choose to care for her at your facility. 
  • We do offer an option to keep and care for your leased mare here at Gypsy Gold at $17.50 per day pre foaling and $22.50 per day for mare and foal until weaned at approximately 6 months of age. 
  • Babies are handled weekly and trained to lead.
  • After the foal is safely weaned, you can transport your Gypsy Vanner foal home or to your boarding or training barn.

The Cost

Gypsy Vanner Foal and Mule Mom

A non-refundable deposit is the first step towards your ET foal.

Pricing is quoted upon request but most embryos are $17,500.00 to $25,000.00 plus board and incidental care if kept at Gypsy Gold. 

* PAY OVER TIME: a deposit with monthly payments is available if you choose. The recipient mare must be boarded at Gypsy Gold through the payment period or pay off the embryo early and keep the recipient mare at your facility. 

Contact us for availability.

It will take approximately 17 months for your foal to be carried, born and then weaned.

Other Considerations

We cannot guarantee the color or sex of your foal, however there is a new program allowing you to choose the sex of your foal for an additional $1000.00 per cycle with an 80% success rate. 

The winningest mare and stallion in the Vanner breeds history along with multiple Hall Of Fame winners are one hundred percent Gypsy Gold Genetics so your Gypsy Gold embryo transfer Vanner baby is sure to grow into the horse of your dreams.  

 Your Gypsy Gold foal will be valued at far more than your embryo transfer investment.
