This place must be brand new, have not seen it or have had anyone that has been there... Great business idea.

300 isn't too bad!!! Nothing compared to the 800 we used to pay O.o

$800 for PASTURE BOARD? MOTHER OF GOD! Where were you? Normally around here, when pasture is plentiful, $200 is pricey and I only get away with it because I include grain and shelter durning ugly weather!

It was actually stall board, for one horse. Ever heard of a man named Rod Dunbar? He's been on the news many times for cheating people out of money and horses. We were new to horses and didn't know any better. The reason it was so high was because my horse was in training and got ridden....once a he also talked us into a $1200 saddle and my first horse who was 4 at the time. Oh yes, let's put an 11 year old who has never owned a horse on this. Then of course he talked us into breeding this horse to "calm her down". Oh, yeah, the stud was one of the other boarders horses. So sassy is my illegitimate child:)

OMILOWERED, I hate folks like that! They give all horse people a bad name and make everyone look shady.

$800 for full board and training (if they are actually DOING the training) isn't too bad, but ......your situation.......grrrrrr!

@Bridlewood - yes, they're brand new construction, I don't think they're even available for rent yet, I think this summer, maybe?

Oh yes, it was sooo awesome. NOT. We didn't know any better, and of course now we do. I really don't think he did any training on her what-so-ever. I was the one who taught (when we finally brought her home) her pretty much everything other than sidepass and pivot.
I'd really like to be able to register Sassy, but this is her 5 year old year, La Roan Ranger is now a gelding and his REAL owners would probably like a stud fee. Which we paid to Rod already, but I am sure they had no idea Ranger was even bred to Dream. And, random question. Is it normal for a breeder to breed a mare 5 times in one week? I found that kinda weird. Especially for a late April baby. Lol

Some people subscribe to the 'breed 'em til they go out' theory and might even breed the mare more than once a day. If turned out together the stallion will mount a mare many times in one day and go for several days until she's not receptive anymore.

Most breeders now a days, do once every other day until the mare is no longer receptive or until she shows that she's ovulated via Ultrasound. I don't know if MOST breeders, but a lot of them now, only do AI and no more live cover. I know I only do AI with my stallion, no live cover on outside mares.

They did live cover, and he was a bit of a violent stud sometimes..I am sure Dream was like "Dude you are way too old for me!! This is so wrong!!!"
