    Default My bank is cookin me up a tastey dish indeed!

    We all know horse poeple:
    1. can't be horseless too long,
    2. spend quickly.


    I've been up to trickery and I'm pretty sure I've found myself a winner!
    nope, not a slight of hand but possibly an and-illusion.

    I didn't reveal the breed of the mare I've chosen. See if you can figure it out.

    This will all happen via frozen ET for a 2013 baby.

    (I'm still way too happy about my winning bid at midnight last night for the stallion auction)

    Something like an Andalusian, or maybe an Arab/Morgan cross
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    Baby momma's daddy reminded me of my mom's Warlander, so I'm going with Andalusian, as he most certainly doesn't look like her Friesian half.
    My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.

    Baby Mamma is an Andy. ; )
    this horse is going to be a dressage riders dream.
    MINE!

    So what happens is we breed the mare and then flush. short cycle her and then breed her again and flush. (this will start in November)

    both embryos are frozen. I think they snap freeze them in liquid nitrogen.

    Then when Jenny is at the perfect time in her cycle we stick and embryo in her and pray to the embryo sticking Gods.

    If she takes then YEY! If not then we have one more shot.

    If she takes the first time then I have a second embryo that will either be destroyed once the baby is born, or kept on file in the liquid nitrogen cryostat. If I want another baby in the future I'll call Kim and pay her another stud fee, and obviously also pay the mare owner another mare fee and use the frozen egg.

    So in this case, I buy a stud fee and an egg.

    Luckily, Danielle has two recip mares that she has used many times, Jenny being the older and most experienced.
    The other mare is a beautiful younger TB X Consul mare (sister to her advanced eventer TK Eiken Tango--career ending injury before she was even started under saddle--a hunter jumper barn has been keeping her for the past years making amazing hunter babies with her).

    Right now Danielle has this TB/Consul mare in foal to Embrace.

    Hey! You already have TWO. My turn now!

    (thanks, though I'm an ebay machine--I will say that my heart was beating though my head while I waited for those last 30 seconds to throw in my bid)
