    I had considered this stallion, but ruled him out myself for reasons already mentioned. I was looking for a refining stallion and got to thinking it's too much of a gamble whether he'll be refining...

    10% - 20% lower according to the article.

    Thanks for all of the personal stories. The article did warn of the pitfalls, but its easy to read the positives and start thinking its doable. Lucky...

    I'm guessing which is the ad you think is artsy, but I liked it. I didn't understand the stallion ad with the horse standing on a box though.

    Oh, and I saw your ad RiverOaks, thought it looked...
  4. fresh v frozen, any thoughts, stories from frozen users?

    We're probably all thinking about our breeding plans for this year already. I've never used frozen semen, but just reading an article in Warmbloods Today about frozen semen has me nearly thinking it...

    The information is only as good as the people entering it, so reviewing sold horses is basically useless. It's a shame sellers are so dishonest, and maybe a bigger shame that we've learned to accept...

    Nobody should breed only for color, but I didn't get the impression from the OP that color was the only priority. If she's got a color preference and there are nice stallions which match that color...

    This comes back to breeder education, imho. The same breeders who can't see that their horses are not breeding quality, are likely to be barn blind regarding their horses for sale too. I think a...

    It is hard to vote, I see the problem as primarily #1 (uneducated breeders, who in turn produce a low quality product), but I also know there is a real need for some sort of a tracking system (#6.)

    I've seen some very good deals on broodmares for sale, pennies on the dollar of what they should be worth. It's not a good time to be a seller, but it's a good time to be a buyer!

    I use price ranges, not exact prices. It gives the buyer a good idea of the price, leaves room for commissions if needed, and also means I don't have to update the website as often. I also don't...

    I'm curious what breed you are meaning when you say non-warmblood. Some non-warmblood breeds, such as Andalusians, Lusitanos, and Friesians, have pricetags very comparable to warmbloods. Other...

    You're addressing throwbacks, right? Here's how I see it. You're right that breeds like Morgans and QH's have been bred for a very long time and have pretty consistent types, but all those...

    I don't think we need another registry, rather some sort of alliance of existing registries. (I've just posted a lengthy response on the other thread.) This way, there is room for all registries...

    And yet, this is what we do, every reputable registry I can think of has breed standards and approval for breeding stock (with the exception of the Jockey Club, which is unique.)
