    Default Super Frozen Semen

    I would like to know what stallion has the "super frozen semen" reputation.
    By that I mean, often gets mare pregnant on partial dose.

    Reason for asking: mares getting older, starting to have trouble with clearance issue so want to put as little frozen semen when insiminating in order to reduce the inflamatory response.

    So the one I know about (updating with responses from this thread):
    Sandro Hit
    Sir Donnerhall
    Dauphin
    Fidertanz,
    Tailormade Temptation,
    Romanov,
    For Compliment
    Diarado,
    Catoki,
    Quite Easy
    Balou du Rouet,
    Sarkozy,
    Sunny Boy,
    Desperados,
    Contendro Bube,
    Status Quo,
    Cassini II
    Calato,
    Zirocco Blue,
    Calido
    De niro,
    Belissimo,
    Stedinger

    Please, if you know of other let me know!

    I got a Pregnancy on one straw of both For Compliment (5 straw dose) and Blu Hors Romanov (three straw dose) though I did use deep horn method for both.

    When the vet thawed my Belissimo M straws they said the mobility was some of the best they'd seen. I've heard this from others as well.

    I just re-read your original post, formosus. I wanted to make clear that I have never used a partial dose.

    The frozen semen of the late stallion Fred Astair was bionic. Five pregnancies, four were first cycle, two of those were one dose, split.

    Calato and Cassini II semen is great, great, great. 60% or greater motility, and proven.

    I don't usually breed with only partial doses, but if that is the criteria then I've gotten pregnancies from Contendro I, Calido and Zirocco Blue using only 1/2 doses. The Zirocco Blue is especially good and I've gotten pregnancies using 1/2 dose more than just one time.

    Hillside, how many straws did you get for Contendro 1 ? I bought a dose this year, two straws total, I tried one straw and it didn't work (

    I bred a mare last year and got her in foal on 1/2 dose of Rotspon but unfortunately she lost it by 30 days. So rebred her with a full dose to Rascalino and she is currently in foal.

    I bought my Contendro 3 or 4 years ago and it was the two straw dose. I bred with a single straw, but not by choice; the other one exploded while thawing.

    I've also heard Diamant de Semilly is fantastic... Most mares catch with 1 straw.

    Which is great, because the semen is somewhere around $1,900 PER STRAW. Wowza!!!

    i only ever use one quarter of a dose of semen, so if its 3 or 4 straws per dose, i use 1 straw

    if its 8 straws per dose, i use 2 straws

    other great semen is Sarkozy, Sunny Boy, Desperados, De niro, Belissimo and Stedinger fantastic

    Contendros Bube is awesome and lived for 2 days inside the mare

    Status Quo will also take with 1 straw

    i have never had much luck with Fidertanz and Quaterback although i got my last pregnancy with QB from 1 straw only

    Are there really people who have got Fidertanz pregnancies with 1 straw?

    Well, here we got success with Dauphin (in 2011 (1x with 3 straws) and 2012 (2x with 3 straws, but the mare lost it both time before the 30 days check)), Fidertanz (2011 and 2012 each time 1/2 dose), Graf Top I (2006 full dose) and Brentano II (2006 full dose). No success with Chacco Blue, neither with Daddy Cool back in 2006, using full dose for both.

    Good vet does not hurt neither. But they cannot make wonder. Well, wait. Sometimes they can.
