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
Balou du Rouet,
Please, if you know of other let me know!

Reason: adding info.
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.
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.
