    Am I getting this right keep the elite top stallions stay as live cover only, and the other stallions can go either way? My only problem with that is what level do you say this cut off is, stakes races for the racing TB? And some similar level for other TB.

    Kentucky - no. Elite or less-than-elite stallions have no bearing on this whatsoever

    The JC needs to state that "AI is now permitted" and then leave it up to the individuals stallion owners as to whether they want to go ALL AI, part AI breedings, or "0" AI breedings.

    Many may simply say they don't want the expense to outfit their farms with the necessary equipment, they don't want to learn the procedures, their stallion is too old and set in his ways to learn to jump up on a plastic mare or a myriad of other reasons and that's all fine. But simply give those who WANT to use AI as a method of breeding registerable TB's the option to do so and it may end up being 25% or the market switches over of 50% or less than 10%. Who the heck knows or cares, but at least make the option available for those that want it

    And no - it would never be based on how much a stallion has earned or stands for. It would be up to the individual owners and that's it

    I'm afraid that I still disagree with AI for the reason I mentioned before. It diminishes the value of the stallion and perpetuates a line nearly indefinitely. It also puts more TBs on the ground then the current numbers. The JC could end up with the same mess that the AQHA is in. It also allows anyone with the money for a straw to use it on any breed with little control by the stallion's owner - greed is a powerful motivator.
