    Our vets do an initial ultrasound to confirm pregnancy at 16 days post insemination, then a second check at (or post) 40 days. I don't see why one would need to have any further ultrasounds beyond...

    What about Centurion? I heard good things about him when I was in Holstein (in 2012) but haven't really kept myself informed about him since.

    I appreciate all of the responses. VB, I am well aware that broodmares are very difficult to sell, especially in the current market and that many are being given away. However, GENERALLY SPEAKING,...

    Andrea has two pinto sons of Palladio: Painted CF and Pallido Blu (who looked fabulous at the 70-day test last December!).

    Thank you, clint, that is exactly what I was wondering. There seems to be no ideal solution for selling an open mare with the intention of keeping her current year's foal, but I would hope that...

    Hmm interesting point. Would you have the same concern, though, if the mare IS currently in foal (i.e. provides evidence of current fertility) but is just being sold without the upcoming foal?

    Thanks, Riverotter, that was the type of response I was looking for. Any other opinions or is the general consensus that broodmares are more appealing if advertised open than if in foal?

    Camiros will be 23 this year and I believe Karen still has him available fresh.

    These threads are always depressing - we have come to the realization that we are unreasonably overcharged by our local vets. We had a mare colic on a holiday this past summer (and remained on...

    Best strategy for selling broodmares?

    My apologies if this has been discussed recently as I couldn't find a relevant thread.

    What is the best approach, in the current market, for selling a (well bred) warmblood broodmare? I realize...

    Fair point with respect to race breeding - I am no racing expert. It's nice to know that there is some emphasis placed on marelines in racing pedigrees.

    I was thinking more in terms of breeding...

    They are one and the same, that is the point. The confusion comes when people start discussing how this mare produced this stallion, who produced such and such. That is no longer a discussion of...

    I'd rather not "choose sides" but I think you are missing the point of the influence of the stamm. A stallion can not "pass on" a stamm, obviously, because the stamm comes from the motherline. Only a...

    I disagree. Some horses recover, and usually only with long-term, consistent CORRECT training rather than just as function of "time" itself. Not all do, and highly sensitive horses will take a LONG...

    I think this also applies more to work at the upper levels - not all horses (as I understand it) can take the pressure of the more difficult work, such as that needed for the FEI levels.

    Do you mean AHHA (American Holsteiner Horse Association)? AHA is the Arabian horse registry.

    If the foal is a filly, I don't believe COP fillies are eligible for approval for breeding, at least...

    Perhaps there was a good reason, but why would someone ever wean a foal at 3 months??
