    Too funny! I didn't get to see your foals go because I was back at the barn getting the colt ready, but I saw them around, of course :)

    I will PM my thoughts on Lasino....I'm repeating that...

    I know the mare and the owner. I think the cross is an excellent idea, but no one can predict what it will produce...if any of us could this whole breeding thing would be a piece-of-cake!

    I believe that was my foal :) I know the OP was from a while ago, but I'd be happy to share if the info is still needed!

    Yeah, the County fitter is great, but only comes a couple of times/year. When I was saddle shopping I ended up getting a Black Country saddle because they were really patient and helpful with the...

    There was a story in COTH along those lines, just not sure if this is the same horse (but that would make sense). The horse was bought by Kenny's son as a surprise for his birthday.....

    This. Contendro is known to down-size mares. I used him for just that and my now 5 yr old has reached 16.2. Her dam was 17 hands and more older style; this resulting daughter has a much better type,...

    I have a young horse in training with Nick right now and he's doing a great job with her! But I'm not local to the area, so can't help out with any other info :)

    One dose, one foal (she's five now, so...not exactly recent info :) )

    I had a Candillo Jr filly last year, from fresh-cooled semen. I have heard that more people have had success with his frozen semen than with the fresh-cooled, but I had no problems (older mare, too).

    Happy, thankful and relieved to be able to announce that my 2014 breeding season is officially over! If all goes well, I will be welcoming the following foals in 2015:

    If the tear is as described it is not uncommon to wait weeks before fixing. Another opinion never hurts, though.

    I would guess that she's either not cycling yet (some mares aren't, yet, and that's not abnormal). It could also be an anovulatory follicle. If she's still transitional there's nothing to do but...

    We have confirmed at 30+ days:
    Zirocco Blue/Indoctro/Phantom (2 of these; ET foals)
    Contefino/Capitol I/Sacramento Song xx

    A couple of others past the 14 day check, but not to the 30 day yet,...

    There's no way I'm wading back into the original argument here, as I'm never going to see eye-to-eye with some of the other breeders here, at least on this particular topic. However, as a technical...

    No, definitely no hard feelings! I always appreciate the input :) And thank you for the good wishes; I wish you (and all the other breeders here) the same!

    Well, in all fairness, Cartani was only one of the examples I listed :) I stand behind my opinion, and while I'm still learning (and probably always will be), I'm happy with what I'm doing, my buyers...

    Oh Reece, while I was not arguing that Cartani is "world famous", perhaps you should take up that argument with the Verband; they seem to think pretty highly of him. From the Verband website "Cartani...

    I used to believe the adage of "breed the best, ride the rest", as that is what I was taught by several breeders that I truly respect. But in the last year or two I've really noticed that there are...

    Actually, I think you might have me mistaken for someone else:) I no longer even publicly announce my pregnancies until they are at least 30 days along, and I don't advertise in-uteros until the...

    Well, luckily there are enough that break that rule that I don't mind giving them a try in my program :) And I have no problem selling the babies, so to each their own!

    Well, I have two confirmed, 30+ day pregnancies already, those are Zirocco Blue/Indoctro pregnancies (single embryo transfer flush).

    The rest of the plan (always subject to change :) ):

    The sticky, purple tinged discharge is absolutely, 100% totally normal. This is ism ost often thought of as the cervical "plug" , and it is described in the breeding literature as being "rose...
