A very nice END OF SEASON SPECIAL for you! $400/dose

Being a mare owner/breeder also, I empathize with those of you who are finding yourselves at the end of a difficult season with empty mares.
I have just had an idea and would like to put forth this offering to you: 

There is ONE stallion that I brought semen from this season that has surpassed all other stallions for fertility. And, this stallion has also been offered all season long with a Live Foal Guarantee.
This is SERANO GOLD, a classically bred Oldenburg stallion of excellent type, and the best of temperament and willingness to work that absolutely shines through in all of his offspring. He stamps his offspring in his image, both interior and exterior qualities.


To this day, I believe his positive note for the American Warmblood breeding market is the absolute trainability/rideability of his offspring. He is such a strong stamper and gives a consistent “product” in very user friendly, beautiful, and easy to ride and train partners. This is a jewel of a sire for the American dressage market, and I would not discount him as a hunter sire.
Here is Serano , age 17, on July 4, 2017 ....still fresh and fit, having a daily work .

This is a Serano Gold son, "Silencio Gold" now competing at Prix St. Georges.

For this first season, breeders that took advantage of Serano were well rewarded with a 100% conception rate. Now, granted there were only 9 mares bred, but I still think that speaks volumes for the quality and fertility of this most excellently produced semen. You can read the semen report yourself, and be amazed!

Oldenburg Inspection a sweet memory of 2017 already!!

Sebastian Rohde

Well, hard to believe, but another year's foal and mare inspection 
has come and gone. 

Yesterday we had Sebastian Rohde and Rainer Ahlers as our German Oldenburg Verband representatives. 


My foals were born later than ever and the inspection was earlier than ever, so I can't say that my babies were as brilliant as they have been or will be, but still all were valued well. all received premium accolades and two "Foal of Distinction" awards. I also presented to mares that were nicely rewarded. 


We had a nice group of people here and quite a number of spectators that took the time to come over and see all the nice horses (and Weser Ems ponies!)



FRIGGA (Florencio - Pik Labionics) standing for her mare evaluation. She was very well admired and scored a 7.5 (Premium level) and was sited for her smooth topline, beautiful female type, good limbs, well set neck and correctness of conformation. Dean Graham and baby SELESTINA hang out in the background.
SELESTINA (Sezuan x Frigga). Another awkward growth stage in this filly, but the judges saw her "Movement through her whole body", with suspension, control of her limbs and suppleness. They commented on her strong joints, nice frame and long legs. She was awarded Premium Foal as well as "Foal of Distinction".




SERAPHINA (Sezuan x Cherokee Morning Breeze) filly, received "Foal of Distinction" award and was praised for her balance, powerful hindquarters,strong topline, good substance without being coarse, nice type, arching, well set neck, correctness of limbs and her carrying power. With additional comments and discussion of her bloodlines that contribute to her athleticism and long term soundness prospects. —
3 year old JURA (Totilas out of Finale) was presented for mare approval, as she has an ET due next year (knock wood) by DE NIRO! This gorgeous creature really, really impressed our Inspectors, who commented that "she has to be the most beautiful Totilas they have ever seen". Thanks to her Mama, Finale (Furst Heinrich - Rubinstein). JURA is a 4th generation mare of my program stemming from my foundation mare, Helena TK. She scored a whopping 8.5 with many praises for her athleticism , self carriage, correctness, etc. Well, I think you can see for yourself. And a huge thank you to Dean Graham for stepping up at the last moment to take her for just one more round to the enjoyment of the jury and spectators. This same filly was 2 year old Champion filly for KWPN in North America last year

The filly, REVANALI (Revolution out of Finale) was shining. She was awarded premium; Long legged type, but very correct in her bones, tremendous walk and good shoulder, topline.

Breeders, please report your results

Each year I almost have to beg for pregnancy reports. Seems that those who do NOT get a mare in foal are the only ones that contact me.
Please give me just a short Yay or Nay, naming the stallion you used from my supply, # of doses and status of the mare; i.e. any issues with the cycle, etc.

Personally, I had a disastrous year with my mares, but I cannot blame only the semen. Out of  7 mares I was hoping to get in foal, I have only ONE mare by embryo transfer and a mare of a friend's so far still pregnant.  I am understandably depressed and super disappointed. I remember the good years, way back when, that we would breed a mare (with frozen), she would get in foal and have a baby the next year. Now that is the exception!

"OH THE TIMES, THEY ARE A CHANGING"

So far I am pulling information of the newest stallions to the program, as the others have proven themselves over the years.


DON MARTILLO wins the Lottery for performance, boasting a 90% conception rate with 9 mares reporting bred; 8 pregnant, 1 not in foal. 
VITALIS has a close 2nd with 80% , but more mares bred this season - of reported breedings, 24 mares bred, 19 pregnant,  5 not in foal. 

I am waiting for more up to date reports on a few others. 
use my email please:  judy@yancey-farms.com

Like trying to catch lightening in a bottle!

So, the yellow  perennial  Peanut is in bloom, and I thought, "oh how fun, I'll take pics of the fillies in the flowers"! WRONG! ...... Without help it was ridiculous!  These are the best I could do with Filly #1, REVANALI by Revolution out of Finale  (Furst Heinrich - Rubinstein). Even my little dog Mickie tried to help me organize a shoot...... Hah!!

REVANALI born April 22,2017 by REVOLUTION

"REVANALI" - exhibiting her favorite pose!

She loves her big loose walk, always on a "Mission"!


REVANALI 7 weeks



So, that was IT for the peanut flower photo shoot! 
Still, I think she is going to be quite a powerful gal!

Precious new colt by Asgard's IBIZA....

The first foals of Asgard's IBIZA are hitting the ground, and appear to be exceeding the breeders' expectations of type and movement. 



Stamped by his sire, here is a newborn colt out of a Rohdiamant - Donnerschwee mare owned by the owner of IBIZA. This precious baby is name Asgard's INDICO.  Charming in type and a carbon copy of his sire. 

Semen of IBIZA is due to arrive next week. It has proven fertility and is limited in quantity.

LFG contracts now available on selected stallions

For 2017 we will be able to offer all of the stallions that are in ownership of "The Stallion Company" in France. Ken Rehill, owner, has long promoted a "mare friendly" attitude, and we are going to try the LFG in the U.S., making adjustments to the logistics of supplying enough backup doses in inventory supply. That's the hardest part, to predict needs. Happily, the fertility of the stallions from The Stallion Company is without question.
BENTLEY vd HEFFINK

LE PRINCE de BOIS

QUINTERO la SILLA

And to add to the LFG concept, which began for me last year with the Eventing Sire, "RAMIRO B", I will personally add the beautiful, well appreciated sire SERANO GOLD!

SERANO GOLD
The stallions' pages are up and operational!  And I hope that this might be of interest to some of you.

Offering for young stallion "Secret"...

SECRET (Sezuan - St. Moritz - Rotspon)

Well, he has been much the talk of the town the past week since being introduced to the market outside of Germany. 
I had a nice visit with Gestuet WM and met young (3 years) "SECRET" a few weeks ago. and was delighted with his quality and his nature. 
Time has not yet proven how these lofty moving youngsters will mature for the Gran Prix ring, but, for now, they are captivating. And this one is absolutely good in his legs and mind. He goes for his stallion testing in mid April, so we will all be looking forward to those results.
It has not worked out to freeze semen for the U.S. due to the early demand for fresh cooled semen in his own Country. We will look to the Fall for them to be able to dedicate time for freezing for North America , looking towards the next breeding season

I am very pleased to introduce SERANO GOLD to the American breeding market. He will be offered with an optional LFG contract. 

PEDIGREE
I first met Serano Gold as a young stallion, fresh off a win to qualify for the German Nationals Championships (Bundeschampionats). He was in the Finals that year, as a 3 year old. He qualified 2 more times for the BCs , then went to Edward Gal for training, where he was successful through Prix St. Georges as well as in breeding with KWPN mares. Subsequently he was sold into England and disappeared from the public eye…… until NOW!  A sharp eyed breeder kept his eye on Serano Gold all the time, and when the opportunity again arose, Serano Gold was purchased and relocated to a wonderful Stud Farm in Austria, where two of his excellent sons live!Both are stallions, Solitaire Gold and Silenzio Gold. (see videos) Still sound, happy and super healthy, Serano Gold is working the Grand Prix under rider Marcus Notworthy, qualified rider at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. 



To this day, I believe his positive note for the American Warmblood breeding market is the absolute trainability/rideability of his offspring. He is such a strong stamper and gives a consistent “product”; in very user friendly, beautiful and easy to ride and train partners. This is a jewel of a sire for the American dressage market, and I would not discount him as a hunter sire

Excellent quality semen has been collected and prepared at world renowned University of Austria. Introductory price of $650 per dose this year or $1600 LFG.
