Shylaaa (Small chance) says
You need to understand animals like horses, a bond is important. Also, there is too much to go wrong. Horses who are not used to being handled in that way by machinery are highly likely to injure themselves or break something. With DNA testing etc. for the owners to know what characteristics their foal will have and knowing which horse to breed with, AI could assist.

I think that this is a case where a task is being automated, but not the job as a whole.
