    Default Margaret Bzdak of Tantallon Farm/Tantallon All American

    I am trying to find contact info for Margaret Bzdak of Tantallon Farm in Virginia.

    Her stallion Tantallon All American is on lease to Baystar Farm/Erin Troy here in Ontario and Erin does not return my phone calls or e-mails. I am trying to get a hold of her to set-up a breeding to the stallion for next season and it's a complete dead end!! I've been told by other clients of her's that she is EXTREMELY hard to get a hold of and I have now witnessed this.

    So any help would be really appreciated, I think Erin posts on here as well as poneez or something so maybe she will see this and contact me. If so, here's my e-mail!!

    I can't help you with contact info, but I would be hesitant to use any stallion who was standing with someone so hard to reach/unwilling to answer calls. When you're in the middle of trying to get your mare bred and she won't return your calls, you'll really be in trouble! Good luck!

    That is no reflection on the stallion but lots on the person standing. Margaret will want to know about that.

    Thank you for the two people who e-mailed me as well as you VirginiaBred.

    I figured Margaret would like to know about this. The lady standing the stud has a history of ignoring phone calls and messages. Then when she does end up calling back (if she does) she always has a new excuse.

    I have a filly by the stallion and I LOVE HER. That is why I want to repeat the breeding next season, but I definitely won't be dealing with the person standing him now. I would much rather deal directly with Margaret or someone who actually appreciates business - especially repeat business!!

    I just wanted to update and let everyone interested know that Tantallon All American will be returning to Margaret sometime around April 2010 so if you want to breed to him she will be standing him when he returns.

    ummm , not to be a bit of dead wood,and saying ahead of time that I don't know one soul involved but, under what obligation does this Erin person have to return your phone calls or emails ??

    if the stallion is leased to her, what requirement is there that she breed to any mares but her own ?

    and why do you feel the need to "tattle"on her to the owner of the stallion?

    the stallion owner has their end of the deal in either lease money or not feeding him while he's gone or whatever so unless she is under contract to breed the wheels off of him to all comers,I just don't see the drama....

    Thank you to all in letting me know what was happening regarding my stallion. I really appreciate it. I really don't think of it as "tattling" Tamara. He was leased to be promoted at stud to the public. And I agree with BelladonnaLily, that if you are standing a stallion, you have to be able to be available at all times and return all communication in a timely fashion. Especially during the breeding season. Or as a precursor for potential breedings for the following year. I have made contact with Erin, and she apologizes for any and all troubles. And yes, my boy will come home to Virginia in 2010. I'm very excited as his first crop has gone above and beyond my expectations.

    well then...that is a different matter all together...

    thank you for the explanation...as I said I don't know anyone involved and public promotion is different than for ones own mares

    I think I did see a Tantallon prefixed pony in Knoxville maybe two years ago...a bay medium perhaps?? it was not bad at all...

    Thank you Tamara for the kind words. That might have been Tantallon Masterpiece that you saw. I just visited your website. I remember seeing Tuck Everlasting show at PF. He really is a nice pony. I'm a sucker for a dapple gray Best of luck.
