    I agree with you Manni01 that you have less certainty about the outcome with a Young stallion. It is a risk. But in my mind, the risk is necessary in order to go forward.

    Maybe some people will consider that modern means only refined and extravagant. But most of the breeders it is more than that. I think it not accurate, and even a little condescending to assume that...

    Truecolours, I think you have it right, it is a business decision on their part and I am sure they are aware of the price they pay for it. Being myself on the more "paranoiac" side, I can see their...
