    Contender frozen??? Is it any better than it was 10 years ago? I tried FIVE (chiching chiching chiching - get the picture?) times with frozen Contender w/o success. I would have been better off shipping the mare back to germany to breed than those 5 wasted cycles. Her mother was a full sister to Cassini I - I wish I had bred to someone else and gotten a foal from her! Of course I didn't - sold the mare for next to nothing and moved on...I'll admit there were times I was didn't know what I had or what I was doing in thoses days... At the time, although the semen looked good, it was hard to get a pregnancy from frozen Contender.

    I have a dose of San Rubin I would consider selling as it looks I will not be getting to use it this year either. Hate to see it just sitting there if someone else is interested.

    the contender isn't good, but it got 2 pregnancies. so we'll try at the clinic when we have the right mare. that guy carlo, under nick skelton who's been tearing up wef is by contender.

    It is reasonable IF you plan ahead. The dry shipper tanks weigh about 30 pounds, so if you need it overnight or the vet you use doesn't have a nitrogen tank (I'm always suspect of anyone that claims to do frozen semen, but doesn't even have a nitrogen storage tank <sigh>) it means you're going to pay a premium for that. Or if you order in the height of breeding season, chances are the tank will be need to be over nighted to you and over nighted back. The tanks are EXPENSIVE!!! So most shipping facilities will have a limited number of them on hand. Plan ahead! Right now, we ship out frozen semen a few times a week. But, during the height of the breeding season, as soon as a tank comes in, it gets charged and goes right back out and we need them back for the next breeder to be able to get semen in time! I figure that even with everything going correctly, I expect a one week turnaround when I ship out frozen semen. At $1200 a tank, I expect it to take at least 2 years to recoup our investment on a tank. And, if the tank is damaged, well...there goes our investment <rolling eyes>. The advantage is that you can have multiple doses shipped at once, so the cost can be deferred out over several insemination doses. The ultimate costs is usually less than if you are ordering fresh cooled semen AND with the added advantage that it can be sitting there in the tank ready to use when your mare is ready to breed. No worries on whether or not the semen will be lost, the stallion doesn't collect, it's a Sunday and you can't get semen, etc. But the take home message is to order early so that the shipment can come by ground...

    Oh and edited to add, we've got too many to list here <LOL>....but mostly domestic boys

    Hope that helps!

    No. That's something worthwhile to hold a grudge about forevah
