    Default Rubin Royal pregnancies?

    Does anyone know if there have been frozen semen pregnancies from Rubin Royal?

    I am in Australia and I haven't heard of any.

    I asked this question as well awhile ago. I've not heard of any either.

    We have a friend in TX that said she had several RR babies this spring - I will check with her and see what she thought; if I understood correctly that would mean it must be at least somewhat potent! I'll let you know...

    We have been representing Rubin Royal for many years. There has never been a problem with the semen; the fertility and conception rates are very acceptable. He just hasn't been the most sought after of sires , paling to the flood of enthusiasm for Sandro Hit, then Sir Donnerhall and now Quaterback. Also, his younger brother, Blue Hors Romanov, made a very strong statement of his siring ability in his first foal crop, and has continued to impress ever since. The Romanov's tend to be leggier and more elegant, with a better hind leg. Rubin Royal has been interesting for hunter breeders, which is why perhaps this meessage board has not had much discussion on him. He remains a solid producer, giving us riding horses with good substance and excellent rideability.

    Judy,

    What has his post thaw rate been? If in fact the rumor that he does not freeze is not true I certainly want to use him. Everyone that i have seen i have LOVED!

    I can't even imagine who would have the information (false, as it turns out) that Rubin Royal's semen does not freeze well. I am the only one who has imported the semen to the U.S., and we certainly have not had poor results. So, once again, sounds like a green eyed monster is spreading untruths. "Post thaw rate" has little to do with fertility. Proof is in the pudding, and his conception rate is well above average. I would have no hesitation using him if he fit my program. Once again, both he and Romanov will be a part of 2009 German Frozen Semen Program at Yancey Farms.

    While I do not have a video to show you, a good friend of mine has gelding by Rubin Royal out of a Landadel mare. She showed him at Third Level this year and just got Reserve Champion at regionals. He is a WOW mover getting nines for his extended trot routinely throughout the year. He also got 9's and 8's on his gaits regularly - TONS of knee action. This was his first year at Third and his changes were not totally confirmed, so there were a few mistakes here and there. You really can't fault his quality - one super, super horse. He can be a bit hot and tense but other than that - he is phenomenal. When she gets that fixed - he is going to be hard to beat. Very good mind overall though - just a bit wired sometimes.

    He was not bred in the US though - imported from Germany.
