In the early hours of March 4, 2021, Miss Lynx Moonshine births a healthy colt. The new mother is a client mare at Colorado State University’s Equine Reproduction Laboratory.
At 2:42 a.m., the colt takes his first wobbly steps with help from Dr. Matty May, a first-year resident.
Founded in 1967, the laboratory has evolved into an international leader in assisted reproduction techniques, and educates students in equine theriogenology with hands-on internship and residency programs.
“We breed endangered shire horses, one of the biggest breeds of draft horses,” says Casey MacKenzie, owner-operator of MacKenzie Shires. “The ERL has been a lifesaver for my breeding business.”
