    Hmmmm...... I know quite a few American "trainers" that go to Germany/Holland and buy horses there that they then sell in the US for sometimes twice the amount. I guess that's alright??

    I preface this by reminding you of the saying about opinions.... :-)

    That said, I quit breeding mares after they're around 16 or 17 years old because to me the quality of the foals decreases with...

    Is it just me or are there other folks that have a hard time believing that the OP's chicks NEVER leave the property given the fact that there is nothing to keep them from wandering off?

    The product you're looking for is called Foalert and no, it does not get "installed" in the cervix but rather the outside of the vagina. I've been using Foalert for going on 20 years and have only...

    I'm agreeing with vineyridge here and find a lot of this discusting! Just because you can do it shouldn't always mean that you do, especially when it makes no sense given the environment these...

    I think 20 is definitely too old for a mare to have her first foal. 10 is fine, and you're pushing your luck at 15.

    Other considerations concern whether you use frozen or fresh-cooled semen. I...

    Dutch stallion Ferro.... he's homozygous for the black gene and definitely reduces white markings. He also was quite a jumper before they put him in the dressage ring.

    I think Weixiao is definitely on the right track! Not sure though whether Denny just tried to explain the sheer number of Mr. P relatives in the eventing world, or state that breeding is a crap...

    I agree.... 7% is a lot of money that isn't going to the registry. Add to that the fact that with the commercial site you have immediate access to other registries that have also chosen that venue,...

    With today's access to European top stallions via frozen semen, standing a stallion in the US makes no financial sense whatsoever for the average horse owner. Ask me how I know?
