    Yes, I have shown, those were just minimal rates. I expect to pay well over 25,000 in just one year. I did add everything in because there's isn't a way to predict feed and hay costs or if there is a change in fees. I expect them to continue to rise. I calculated that months ago with it being just a calendar list of my state shows alone not outside.

    On a scale, it could cost you well over 25,000 but breed registeries vary on costs. There's a lot to it.

    Yes, it absolutely could cost that much -- just to show. You are talking about campaigning a stallion. Bigger shows, bigger trainers, more money.

    You list mentioned the World Show and Congress. At least one of those would be outside your state...so update that on the price list.

    The cost of hay and feed is absolutely minimal. I wouldn't be all too worried about rising costs there.

    I realize I posted World and Congress. That's my mistake for posting that. I've priced some on Congress, but at this point if you're training for just one specific event it's easier to figure your cost just for that show.

    I'm probably going to make a new list once my horse is training. I'm aiming high and going all around. One is for certain, it'll be hard to break even if you don't do it right.

    A successful breeding program is centered on the broodmares. Stallions come and go but a good group of mares that can be bred to different stallions and produce consistently are priceless. Those mares will also replace themselves with their daughters and granddaughters They also give you flexibility to breed to different stallions and add new lines yet still be consistent with the type of foals you produce.
    I bought my stallion to breed to my mares. I did buy his half sister to breed to him and a couple of other distantly related mares that are by Thee Desparado. Of the 22 mares here only 4 were not raised here. Shalom
