How Exactly DO They Collect Horse Semen?
In last week’s TV missive Grandmother mentioned a show on the Discovery Channel titled “Dirty Jobs”. I said “
Every week I pick one show that seems quirky and one show that I’ve never watched before. On Wednesday 10/20/04, Discovery channel has a special titled “Dirty Jobs”. It’s a documentary on the dirtiest jobs some humans hold across the planet. Cleaning dead animals off the road side, for instance. Or scrubbing down a gruesome crime scene.
If yon readers didn’t heed my advice, you should know what you missed.
For I watched, in front of my disbelieving eyes, a man collect a semen sample from a stallion. Which would be, I agree, a somewhat difficult job.
There was involved such as artificial vaginas, semen collection devices, and a ‘tease’ mare.
If this wasn’t amazing enough (yes that stallion did, right on camera, give a sample and yes the host of the show ‘collected’ it), the host also flushed a fertilized egg out of a mare’s vagina and implanted it in another. Pay attention to what I tell you to watch!
