Embryo Transfer Centre

Embryo Transfer

Twemlows Stud Farm specialises in Embryo Transfer and 2008 was highlighted by the arrival of Headley Britannia’s two foals born here at the stud. The foals were the result of embryo transfers carried out in 2007 (awarded through the Twemlows Burghley Scholarship – see below). Since then we have successfully carried out many embryo transfers at the stud and last year introduced the Transported Embryo Service. Please call us to find out more about this service.

As a result of the demand we have had for embryo transfer work we are looking for recipient mares over 16.2hh, who have for some reason become unrideable and are looking for a good home, age 3 to 9 years with no stable vices. We are given some mares – lent others – and occasionally pay for some!

Recipient mare Roo with her 2011 born Brietling foal out of donor mare Rohanna.


Recipient mare Tilly with 2012 born De Niro filly Daisy out of donor mare Wiebke. Daisy came third at the Hanoverian UK Nationals.


Recipient mare Aurora with her 2015 Woodlander Supertramp foal out of donor mare Lady III

All 3 foals seen above were born in 2012 sired by Plot Blue who recently competed in the 2012 London Olympics out of donor mare Ulette. The 3 foals were the result of 2 flushes, all being born very close together.
