theHorse.com: Do Recipient Mares Pass Traits to Foals?

theHorse.com specializes in finding research of interest to horse breeders (and non-breeders) and presenting it very well.



In a recent article, "One researcher describes what we know about the receiving mare’s effect on the foal in embryo transfer scenarios."

The question asked referred specifically to a situation where a non-warmblood mare was the recipient of an embryo from a warmblood mare, and whether the recipient would influence the foal, and how. There is a lot of discussion about this in the breeding community. Read the article to find out what we really know.
