Internal scanning of pregnant mares

I am told "No serious Horse stud would carry out scans on miniatures" I do not believe this to be true... your thoughts would be appreciated.
how many mares have you had scanned and how many problems were caused by the scan?

I appreciate the procedure has a cost, but so too does keeping a mare that isn't in foal. I think the cost of mare care far out ways the cost of ultrasounds.

What did they mean by "serious horse stud"? We are serious here, with many national champions to show for it.
All our mini and pony mares have been ultrasounded for many years. We have never had any tears or other issues. The mares are sedated first and the vet does the U/S. I also like being able to see how old the fetus is - and if there is no pregnancy - what the ovaries are doing follicle-wise. It is good breeding management and eliminates a lot of guesswork.
