I made the 2 hour drive to see Josie today! Haven't seen her in about 3 weeks or so, so it was fun! She is looking great and looks like she'll be ready to AI again possibly this Saturday. I had fun taking pics of her =) Please excuse the fact that the pics aren't proportional, my cam doesn't like taking pics up close =(

Josie was bred a week ago today so I've only got another week to wonder if we're blessed with a pregnancy! Gah, I sure hope she took this time :) frozen is hard to deal with, I'm assuming, and I've been told it had to be done at the specific instance the mare ovulated, which makes the odds lower :( everyone please help pray for a success!!! I'm going up there after she has been u/s'd in foal or not and will probably take advantage of the gorgeous arena they have and ride her while I'm there.

Good luck! She is looking great!

I'm drooling over the arena. I can't imagine what the rest of the facility looks like!

Good luck this time around! I'm going to be AI'ing my mare this year (not til early June though) and it'll be my first ever foray into the AI world... stressful!

She's beautiful by the way

Not to be a huge party pooper or anything. But I'm curious as to the future plans for her. If she does not conceive again...Which I'm crossing my fingers that she will cause I want to see this baby!...But how many times will you try to breed to this stud before throwing in the towel?

If she doesn't take, do they have another stallion they'll let you try to breed with at a reduced cost?

Will you breed to a different stud this year or wait until 2014 to try again with someone else?

Well, given how driven I am for this pairing and the fact that they've indicated there will only be semen for this year, I'm going to leave her there until June to give them adequate time to get her in foal with RC's semen.

If for whatever reason she doesn't take, next year I'll breed her to Hydrive Cat whose babies are really doing well in the cutting pen. They give you a live foal guarantee and will allow the use of another stallion in RC's stead if they're out of semen. I'm just hoping that within the months this year, it will allow time for everything to line up perfectly so she'll get in foal.

Long term, she'll be bred a couple more times to very proven stallions to hopefully start my own line of incredible horses I can compete on and retain for a small breeding operation.

I want to do things like Nrha and have a couple mares that are proven/shown successfully and breed them to the best of the best every other year or so :) in fact, I'm planning on throwing Josie into reining training once I'm through with school and have the means to do so, she'll probably be novice Reiner so I can learn to show and hopefully get some earnings on

Well, SDP Buffalo Ranch had a party last night. It was fun! Margaritas and beer up in the stallion barn, which my sister partaked a little too much of, lol. It was amazing! They flew an entertainer in and we got to watch his show for a good hour. I can't remember his name, but he's the "Man of 1000 voices," or something like that. I got there a few minutes early and turned Josie out to play. She had a LOT of fun and I actually got a couple videos, but they're not letting me upload onto this site. Any idea how to do that? Her preg check is in 4 days!
