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.



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!

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. 

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.

HECTOR VAN D’ABDIJHOEVE (aka "HECTOR"!!) - Get what you need now.

You know him as the spectacular mount of the Irish jumper rider Bertram Allen. Both Bertram and Hector are stars in their field and are racking up huge placings in top competitions. 
Look at them FLY!!

Due to the limited quantity of his frozen semen doses, and the huge demand for him, the semen will not be held in constant inventory in my tanks as usual. It will be by a "PAID ORDER" basis. So, buy what you need and a one time shipment will arrive in early March here. 
We will begin taking orders online this week. 

UTHOPIA now available

And now we have the magnificent competitor, the SIRE of U-Genius..... UTHOPIA

 The man, himself, will be available this season, with proven frozen semen. This is the FIRST time that UTHOPIA has been available in North America, and we think it is another fun and exciting option for seriously minded breeders.

U-Genius offering is now closed

Whew! That was fun!  Claire Hester and I had a delightful time reviewing each and every "application" that came in. It was quite interesting  We studied pedigrees, nicks, type, conformation, etc. Particularly the pedigrees, as the goal is to maximize the qualities of sire and dam and produce a quality individual. 
 Well, it was not easy. There were some really solid mares, good types, deep pedigrees, etc. that came in. But, in the end, we believe we have chosen an interesting variety of types and pedigrees. It will surely help in the assessment of what this good young stallion, U-Genius, will contribute in a pairing. Every mare was a definite candidate, as the quality of mares that owners offered was very high.
This offer has been so very well received and now is oversubscribed, so we will call it a day on applicants and, with permission of mare owners, will list the mares and pedigree with which we will start the breeding career of U-Genius in North America! You will find, in his page on my website that he is now available at a "per dose" price.

So, many thanks to all the mare owners that took interest!
