Just wanted to stop by and say congrats on your decision. I would highly recommend doing some collections with him and freezing the semen for later use... I'm pretty sure it can stay viable for years, if not decades, if collected and frozen properly. Who knows - you're a great team and might accomplish some amazing stuff, and then those collections might be worth a ton!!
Anyways, I would talk to your vet about proud cutting... I think there are some drawbacks to doing it, but I can't remember it off the top of my head.. I'm sure Ryle would know!
Just so you know, I didn't tease my mare (Dancer) with a stallion when I wanted to do AI, and she had near silent heats, the vet had to do US to catch her cycle. So you don't necessarily need a teaser for AI.
Best of luck in your decision!
