    I had a Candillo Jr filly last year, from fresh-cooled semen. I have heard that more people have had success with his frozen semen than with the fresh-cooled, but I had no problems (older mare, too).

    If the tear is as described it is not uncommon to wait weeks before fixing. Another opinion never hurts, though.

    I would guess that she's either not cycling yet (some mares aren't, yet, and that's not abnormal). It could also be an anovulatory follicle. If she's still transitional there's nothing to do but...

    There's no way I'm wading back into the original argument here, as I'm never going to see eye-to-eye with some of the other breeders here, at least on this particular topic. However, as a technical...

    No, definitely no hard feelings! I always appreciate the input :) And thank you for the good wishes; I wish you (and all the other breeders here) the same!

    Well, in all fairness, Cartani was only one of the examples I listed :) I stand behind my opinion, and while I'm still learning (and probably always will be), I'm happy with what I'm doing, my buyers...

    Oh Reece, while I was not arguing that Cartani is "world famous", perhaps you should take up that argument with the Verband; they seem to think pretty highly of him. From the Verband website "Cartani...

    I used to believe the adage of "breed the best, ride the rest", as that is what I was taught by several breeders that I truly respect. But in the last year or two I've really noticed that there are...

    Actually, I think you might have me mistaken for someone else:) I no longer even publicly announce my pregnancies until they are at least 30 days along, and I don't advertise in-uteros until the...

    Well, luckily there are enough that break that rule that I don't mind giving them a try in my program :) And I have no problem selling the babies, so to each their own!

    I actually never assume it's a stolen breeding, or an "accidental" breeding, or an unregistered horse. I always assume (based upon being around the show scene for a while...) that the horse's papers...

    I have a 2012 Calido filly. I bought the semen "second-hand" from someone who bought it from a broker. There was only a 1/2 dose and I used it on a maiden mare; it obviously worked :) I thought Carol...
