    The more animals you are supporting, the higher your costs. The higher your costs, the more business expenses you have to deduct against business income. Your taxable income will be less, so you pay...

    I think that may be true to a certain extent, but if stallions didn't improve movement on their foals, certain stallions would not have become quite as well known and popular as they were/are.

    I agree that breeding programs here are producing some super nice foals. I just attended my 16th Oldenburg inspection (OHBS/GOV - 15 years as organizer), and the overall quality of foals has just...

    Just chiming in to say that I hope the OP has taken some of this advice to heart, and I hope she is okay. Her horse is learning he can bully and dominate her, and is on his way to becoming a savage....

    Excellent post, Ilona! ;)

    Europa and TrueColours - I believe it is a misnomer to refer to the breeders, or registries, in Germany as "celles".

    Yes, she is winding down her breeding program, but the mareline is still impressive. Folks who are buying the daughters or filly embryos from Reina and Finale are getting something precious.

    As DeucesWild mentioned, you will need to use a stallion that is homozygous for the grey gene to be guaranteed of getting a grey foal. IIRC, Fuerst Gotthard was homozygous grey, but I don't know of...
