But, will the foal out of a cutting stallion be a nice reining horse? And which one would I go with, Hydrive or Tr? Omg, I'm soooo torn...

I like Hydrive between those two. And there is no reason I can think of that a cutting bred horse can't perform in reining. I think its very possible. A strong, naturally athletic foal won't have a problem with consistent training...

They're definitely athletic, but cutters can be more hot and reiners usually have a huge drive to stop, so was wondering if that transferred.

Well, I called buffalo ranch and talked to their vet today. She said the chances of Josie catching were slim with RC so I switched her over to Hydrive Cat. I'm hoping she will catch as it looks like she is ready to breed tomorrow or the next day. Here's to hoping this was the right decision!!!!

Good luck.

Watch her catch with this one time insemination by Hydrive.

Haha, that'd be amazing if she would, it'd be about time.

Josie was bred to Hydrive today, so heres to some good luck, hopefully, lol. The vet assured me he is the most fertile stallion in the barn, so I sure hope this ends up in a pregnancy...

Heres a pic of the new sire, Hydrive Cat =) He has 416k earnings and his breeding career just started a couple years ago with produce earnings 405k already =)

I'm a sucker for a hot lookin' chestnut with lots of chrome! From personal experience, I'd have switched stallions the minute they started talking frozen. If not then, when they said, "Low Quality & Frozen" in the same sentence. It just is too iffy to mess with, IMO.

Yeah.... I was really wanting that cross so was willing to try, I won't be doing something like that again though, lol. I'm just glad it's cooled semen from Hydrive and he has great stats, lol. He wasn't my first choice for Josie, but they'll still produce a very nice foal!
