    Question Sport Ponies available by frozen??

    besides Yancey farm and Superior sires.. who am I missing that may carry frozen to outstanding pony stallions? I prefer 14.2 and under.. but at the end of day size does NOT matter... I am outcrossing for conformation improvement on my curly mares.

    My girls are due late this year, (at 333 on first one, but still have two more... 282 and 295) so thinking frozen may be the way to go....

    Does it have to be frozen? Lots of nice Connemaras available fresh.

    With all the wonderful ponies offered fresh, and the fact that mid June/July
    (and even August) is not "late" in the breeding season for most stallions standing in northern areas, I would not rule out fresh.

    I am not sure how familiar you are with frozen, but the shipping/ container rental can quickly double your stud fee for a sportpony..

    The three brokers listed are the major ones carrying frozen pony semen. I have used two of these, Judy Yancey (Voyager) and A-1 (FS Don't Worry) and was very happy. Frozen can be just as affordable as fresh (potentially more) if you have an exper. repro vet and your mare is a good canidate for frozen. The collection fees for fresh are nothing to sneeze at...often a good bit more than shipping frozen. Plus you can get multiple doses of frozen in one delivery and hold them for years. I find as a mare owner, it much reduces my stress level to have it sitting there in the tank insteed of making those sometimes frantic phone calls for collections Of course you can probably still go with fresh even late in the summer. I have had some great customer service from fresh stallion owners this year (Go Mardi Gras and Chardonnay's owners/trainers and vets)...and actually even good luck with FedEx

    Let us know what you decide...

    We have a couple mares that are due late also. We're not breeding them this year to get them back on an earlier schedule.

    Ann, The long view farm link did not open for me????

    Thanks everyone, for the replies, I am looking them all up.

    I absolutely have not ruled out fresh, but was thinking along the lines of hlunig's post

    Stress reducer for me, and the stallion owner.. as well as give me time/flexibility if I decide to wait. I already missed out on getting semen from one stallion because I didn't just order and store the semen.

    Vet is not a concern I use Nandi (Dr. Hurtgen)

    Thank you again.. some nice ponies to consider...keep them coming....

    esp sires you'd really consider an "improvement" sire.

    Sorry.
    www.longviewfarm.us/
    I also don't think your mares are foaling too late for fresh semen. My mares here don't foal tiill July. We still have snow banks that haven't melted yet. I don't breed to foal to early. Like the foals to go out on grass instead of mud.
    Lou Rascoe is super easy to deal with and Stibby is super! My first Stibby foal is in the July group! Will be breeding the mare back. Also have a mare booked to Ridley!
    Happy searching......it's fun!

    The stallion I have found to be an improvement sire is Bodyguard. He is currently standing at Hassler Dressage, but also has a heck of a jump in him! I have four of his offspring by three different mares...and I have always felt he outproduces himself!
