Maydet Vega, a veterinarian who oversees equine programs at Rancho Azucarero, the horse-breeding center west of Havana where the artificial insemination program is being developed, said breeding foals in Cuba has the advantage of allowing horses to adapt to Cuba’s sweltering heat and humidity from birth. “It’s important to be able to produce them on the continent,” Vega said. “They can adapt to the tropical conditions of our climate so people can have them in all countries in the Americas.” (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
