The insemination catheter, or pipette, used in mares is a flexible plastic tube with a rounded tip. The insemination dose is loaded into a syringe with a plastic plunger and connected to the catheter with a short piece of pliable tubing. The tip of the catheter is placed in the palm of the hand with the index finger covering the tip. The gloved hand and insemination pipette are then passed into the cranial portion of the vagina, where the index finger is used to locate the cervix. The insemination catheter is advanced through the cervix into the uterine body and semen is slowly deposited.
