First foal born using sexed semen

The Suffolk Horse Society are proud to have been a part of an innovative new project, resulting in the first ever birth of a healthy filly foal from sexed semen.

The future of the Suffolk Horse breed depends on having enough filly foals to keep the breed going, and last year there were 19 colt foals born with only 15 filly foals, in the whole of the UK. Now a filly foal has been born, following an innovative approach using sex sorted sperm to determine the gender. It’s the first time in the world that this technique has been used to support the survival of rare breeds.

With fewer than 72 female Suffolk Punches remaining in the UK of breeding age, every female born is vital to the survival of this endangered and iconic British horse.
