These sweet foals all have the same biological mother and father thanks to amazing advances in veterinary medicine its Kyrie’s babies there’s no really reason other than our hearts Kyrie Eleison was Lisa’s beloved half arabian a national champion she raised the horse from a foal the bond between the two immediate and strong was the horse that was just do so different human-like touch everybody’s heart Lisa will be separated from Kyrie a foursome 15 years due to personal circumstances but always vowing to find her she tracked the mayor down and scottsdale in 2013 sadly though Kyrie a had developed severe laminitis after bringing a girl home and despite getting the best veterinary care Kyrie was in pain and was declining Lisa was forced to make the tough decision to let her go but she wanted create legacy to live on she was used euthanized in her own stall and they took the ovaries within 20 minutes after Lisa that’s harvested Kyries ovaries they were immediately taken to New Bolton’s reproduction center where dr. tamara dobbie recovered 16 eggs and those were then packaged and shipped overnight to Texas A and M where they performed the actual XE procedure where they inject a single sperm cell a difficult and delicate procedure done under a microscope frozen sperm coming from a stunning stallion named Vitorio the results for embryos that matured in the lab at Texas A&M University and were then transferred into recipient mare’s there three successful pregnancies with peace grace and mercy all becoming surrogates it is unusual to get so many pregnancies from a deceased mares ovaries you know we’re always very thrilled if we get one pregnancy three is pretty uncommon it was a shot in the dark you know it really was important to me to develop a good relationship with the mares and veterinarian dr.
