    Default In foal to Jaguar Mail!

    Our 2008 filly, As Di Ani Z, was not at Upperville this year, as she was being bred to the French stallion, Jaguar Mail. She just passed her 30 day check, and will come home next week to be put in light work under saddle until we turn her out for the winter.

    This was a project that began last fall--here is the pedigree of the foal we are now expecting:

    http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/as+d...to+jaguar+mail

    Almé 2x / Buckpasser 2X / Turn-To 2x/ and Boran 2x (look behind "Comely" for the second appearance of Boran in the pedigree).

    Acord II needs no introduction, As Di Villagana has been discussed often on COTH, Ani's dam, Camille-TB (high scoring non-Han mare at last year's MAHB inspection) is currently competing, having been left open for this year.

    We are really looking forward to this very special foal!

    Congratulations! I am VERY excited to hear your success with Jaguar Mail frozen. We are about to breed our Coconut Grove/Final Pool mare to Jaguar Mail for a client.

    Do you know if your vet used 1 or 2 doses on an insemination?

    Congrats again! Looks like an exciting foal

    Congrats! How was the semen, did your vet give you the percentages?

    Our vet, Ellen Stephens of Laurel, Inc., Hilltop Farm, and SBS did give percentages--all along, skeptical of the claims made by Brullemail (in France), but these turned out to be true--Jaguar Mail's motility rate seems to be a very consistent and astonishing 40+%! It took two cycles, but just a single dose used on each, and we didn't need to request additional semen. Hilltop's contract is very fair, with a few avenues of recourse if there is no foal, even for frozen. Though it has not been without hiccups, I have been extremely pleased at how the whole process has unfolded.

    It was during my research into Ani's dam's pedigree that I noticed the combination of factors that might make Jaguar Mail the perfect match for Ani; at that point he was not available here. It was through the efforts of Jaguar Mail's owner, Bernard Le Courtois, and Natalie DeBernardinis at Hilltop that Jaguar Mail (along with three other Brullemail stallions: Quite Easy, Alligator Fontaine, and Utrillo Van De Heffinck) was made available in time for us to use him for Ani.

    COTH'ers might be interested to note that Brullemail, after twenty five years of breeding, will be conducting an auction next week--I guess that should be on another thread so I'll start one and post a link to it.

    My vet said it looked good....I know people had trouble a few years ago but now that they have it at Hilltop....I plan to give it a try in the next year or two.

    Love Jaguar Mail, you must be thrilled - and a well planned breeding from many fronts. Funny, I see my 2yr old TB filly, and in breeding I'd love to add Buckpasser, and with Jaguar Mail I'd be doubling the Turn To...never thought I'd be considering a WB to introduce the TB lines I want

    Good looking horse, too.

    After a crazy-making breeding season, I'm so happy to report we have a Jaguar Mail pregnancy Our Coconut Grove-Final Pool daughter checked in foal with a very nice looking black dot. It did take two attempts, but the timing on the second breeding was right on ovulation. Two thumbs up for Hilltop, SBS and Brulle Mail for giving American breeders access to this amazing stallion.
