    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,...

    .... from somebody who has been there and could write a book about it... stick with breeding the best mares you can find and forget about standing a stallion in the US. And while you're doing that...

    ... and sometimes the stallion owner will tell you when they want your mare checked... In my experience that has been day 14 to 16, 30 days and then 60 days.

    Tradewind - I've had that conversation with Aqua Farm for some time now.... they have great stallions with super bloodlines and very good movement but horrible photographers! I keep waiting for them...

    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?

    Fannie Mae - funny you should ask about breeding back to Florencio.... The answer in my case is no, I didn't breed the same mare back to him because I don't believe that you get the same good...
