    Heartbreaker semen is of notoriously poor quality and I don't think Presley Boy semen is on the market these days? The people I know who have it won't part with it.

    I still stick to waiting until 2 years old. I might be a little old-fashioned, though :) Just because they play rough in the pasture and manage to not (usually) get hurt, doesn't mean that...

    Lol, Karina :) I'm sure you'll be fine...genetics are funny, though! I did get just a candid shot of the DdS yearling today (she's actually 16 months now). She's certainly no "leggy beauty queen",...

    A Nimmerdor baby could be "worth" a good amount, but it's going to depend greatly upon the dam line. Just because something is "rare" doesn't make it valuable. It's been discussed on here before, but...

    I literally only have a recent candid of my filly, in a group of other yearlings. She's the dark bay.

    I also have two inspection photos in this album, but they're misleading. They're from a year...

    ^^ This is too bad, and quite unusual. Diamant is known for having some of the very best frozen semen on the market. And in my experience, that is completely true; it is phenomenal stuff! Most...

    She's actually just a yearling...sorry if that was confusing. I don't mind posting photos, but I don't think I have anything recent; and yes...that's bc she's a keeper for me (for now) and I tend to...

    I love Diamant de Semilly and am expecting a foal by him, from a Calido/Indoctro mare.

    I have a Diamant de Semilly yearling filly, from an Abdullah/Galoubet mare. the mare was a maiden mare and...

    Most of us breeders that have multiple young horses to sell don't bother with the standard advertising websites anymore. Most of us are advertising in the free facebook groups mentioned here, or on...

    Bayhawk is accurate on this...Casall may have a blood quotient of 50%, but that is not synonymous with being "half-TB". That's just misleading...and really stretching to make a point here.....

    You know what...kudos to more open stud books (such as KWPN) for integrating the genetics from other studbooks to create some superb jumping horses! It really is the globalization of...

    I breed mine at 3 years old. I either back them before breeding, or most often, after they are in foal. Just walk, trot, canter and then they have the rest of that year off. As a four year old, I...

    I would guess poling would be the most common. Who knows, though? But it certainly is obvious sometimes at these auctions, and some licensings, which horses have had some....umm....unnatural...

    HCG has been on "manufacturer back order" for a long time now. I don't know what will replace it, but we've gone to using only deslorelin, which is more expensive.

    Well, I don't know that I agree with the premise, but I'd say it's because for jumpers, pretty is as pretty does! Looks don't matter, but jumping ability does :) That being said, check out...

    I'm also voting that this is a function of social media, more than anything else. People tend to share the bad news more than the good. And when one has had a bad year, one tends to look for/notice...

    Agree with ShannonD on this one. Do the research. Temperament is a factor in the stallion testing, as well. The info on this guy is out there, you just have to do a bit of internet searching.

    I think the bottom line is that if you aren't comfortable with it, you shouldn't do it :) If you're stressed and anxious, it's not going to be a fun experience, no matter what!

    I've done the 12 hrs with a foal as young as 3 weeks before. If I had a mare that was a complete freak about being hauled, then I probably wouldn't drive that far. But here in the Midwest, we don't...

    I think, in general, this is an area where people tend to worry too much. There have been several times that I've had to haul mares w/foals to an inspection site 12 hrs away (from Missouri to Texas)....

    I hosted what was essentially a private inspection a few years ago...just one outside mare. So not the first time, but I certainly doesn't happen very often. I usually drive to Texas for an...

    It's ok; we can agree to disagree :) As I said, I'm not attacking the line...I like the blood. I'm not sure, though, why you're singling me out, though? I certainly am not the only person on this...

    I also have a ton of experience breeding with the Galoubet blood, but not with BdR. I had a direct Galoubet daughter for years and had 5 foals from her, three of which were daughters (one I still...

    1. No foal/horse is perfect; that's not attainable and if that's the goal you will be unhappy.

    2. No one can predict how a foal is going to mature...believe me. They all change incredibly, some...
