Providing care & management for all facets of equine reproduction.

Dr. Hayna is a board-certified theriogenologist dedicated to educating students and providing clients the highest quality of reproductive care for mares and stallions. Each mare and stallion receive individualized care to support the goals for their breeding program. Whether you have years of breeding experience, or this is your first time, we are here to support you and help you learn along the way.

About Our Services

Pregnancy Monitoring

Frequent pregnancy monitoring is important to minimize the risk of a mare aborting a fetus. Trans-rectal and trans-abdominal ultrasound can be used to diagnose issues such as placentitis and premature placental separation. If your mare is diagnosed with one of these issues, she is considered “high risk” and needs to be supported with a treatment protocol.


In the event of a Dystocia, we have emergency staff available 24/7. We have board-certified surgeons and anesthesiologists available for c-sections and board-certified internists to care for the compromised foal.

Artificial Insemination

Artificial insemination allows for a higher conception rate by closely monitoring the mares reproductive cycle and ovulation patterns as well as thorough evaluation and careful timing and handling of the semen.
