I need to know how to go about breeding my stud

Hi everyone! I just purchased a beautiful Quarter horse stud with amazing bloodlines and I am going to pasutre breed him to my quarter horse and paint mares but I would love to stud him out to other people but I am not sure how to go about doing that. I know the advertising side of things but I am not sure how to ship semen or register my stud with different organizations or handbreed other peoples mares. What kind of facilities do I need to house other peoples mares and how long do I keep them and how often do I breed them? How many times can a stud breed a day, week, month without getting stressed or have a substantial decrease in semen count? Any information would be greatly appreciated - Elizabeth

I am not sure just what other registries would he be eligible for.

I would suggest you talk to your vet. They would be able to get you in contact with an equine reproduction lab that would be able to better give you costs and stud management and it would be a more qualified response.

Hand breeding requires EXPERIENCED people to handle the mare and stallion as many things can go wrong. Normally you would breed 1 mare every other day if done live and I would not breed any stallion more than once a day unless you really get overbooked. Twice a day would be maximum under normal circumstances but if you can limit it to less then you are better off.

Housing mares would be very much like boarding only on a daily basis and if you have just the mare alone it is certainly easier all around. Mares with foals can be tricky and another reason you should have experienced people. You will need to have a vet on call to check these mares for breed worthyness ( the owner should do this but don't always count on it) and to see just when they are ready....unless you simply breed every other day during heat and hope for the best.

Again talk to your vet as there are so many circumstances that will vary.

Thank you very much for the information that helps alot. I have hand bred before and handled foals and mares but for local people only and they just trailered their mares to me each day so this information helps alot.

Most people who have Stallions and do outside breeding(to mares other people own) Have a breeding contract written up and require the mares to have a recent negative cognin test.! For you and your stallions benifit you should also state that you have the right to refuse the breeding of any aggressive mares.

I called my vet and talked to him about all of the breeding details and he helped alot I thought it would be more difficult but I've done almost everything he suggested before with other horses.

I seen stud farms like the ones that own Big Brown or Mine That Bird, or Super Saver, they all breed 3 times a day every day for 9 months a year. If you look it up you can find their breeding times. I hope this helps you. And good job with the vet I would have told you to ask them anyway
