    For the future, just in case you're not aware, no guarantee seasons can be insured for just about every aspect of the process (stallion not available, mare slips, foal born dead, etc.) It's a bit...

    Halo's opinion is spot on. In this current market, she would be a tough sell as a broodmare prospect. The fact that she has 2 big name stallions on her page doesn't really mean that much when coupled...
