The reproduction unit has been designed as a quiet separate area, away from the rest of the hospital, for mares with foals at foot that are coming in for artificial insemination (AI). By separating the unit from the main hospital the risk of infection to mares and their foals is minimised and there is less disturbance and therefore less stress for the mares. There are 2 large foaling boxes which provide plenty of room for mares with foals at foot as well as individual post and rail fenced turnout paddocks. There is a designated reproduction examination room with stocks beside the stables so that mares can be examined regularly in a safe environment without having the stress of being led in and out of the hospital.
