I think it could be possible, but imo, I don't think it would have been worth it as the likelihood of RC's semen reaching a follicle before Hydrive's would be a somewhat small percentage given that his semen was poor and frozen (which leads to lower motility) and Hydrive's was awesome/cooled. I think it would have been an added expense to the ranch as they would be giving me an extra dose that could be used somewhere else and the end result would have been the same, other than an added expense to me with the DNA testings and the hold on getting the foal registered. Just not worth it!

Thank you, Wyndella! I'm actually thinking about Big Chex to Cash right now, but was wondering what the most marketable bloodlines for reiners are right now and want to breed to big time reiners. I can't wait until a couple of her foals get in the right hands and get some earnings on them. I'm also planning on showing her in novice, but she'll get the training later in her life, so Im not sure how competitive we'll be, although she is still very, very trainable and open to new things. Gah, I can't believe she is 5 years old already!

Thank you! Sadly no. By the time my mare came in really was too late. Next year is another year!! If I get lucky I may purchase a mare or two in foal.

Hey guys!! Josie is about 3 months bred!! Time sure flies when you don't have any of it, lol. She got visitors a couple days ago. My bestie's little cousin and grandma came out to see the horses and the little girl got to ride! She is only six, which makes her Josie's youngest passenger ever, but they were great! She rode her alone in the roundpen and rode with either my bud and I the rest of the time out around the property. I snapped the other pics of Josie today, she was sooooo dirty!! I can't wait til April!! It'll be fun staying up all night on foal watch with finals right around the same time.

Thank you! My choices are Palomino, Chestnut, Bay, or Buckskin. I really don't care what color it is other than I would really prefer not to have a chestnut, lol. Bay/buckskin are my favorite colors!

I'm late to the party, but just a couple of notes on the DNA issue. From what I understand:
1. Both AQHA and APHA require parentage verification for foals conceived using cooled transported or frozen semen. They do not require it for on-site AI with fresh semen.
2. Both AQHA and APHA require parentage verification for any mare exposed to more than 1 stallion in a 30 day period.

So it looks like Josie's baby will be mad at you for pulling out tail hairs. I'm already excited for next year's foals :)

Thanks guys!!! I'm planning on keeping this foal to be a nice little show prospect, but if it is a colt and not stallion quality, I'll be gelding him and finding him a home where someone will show him!! I really want a filly to retain for my breeding program. I'm planning on breeding to top stallions, so every generation only gets stronger. I didn't know that CCH! I guess the foal will be upset, because Ill be registering it asap with a super cute name, hopefully!!!

Josie is doing great, although my bud has her horse and we have my mom's 2 goats in there with her, so they're being grain thieves! I'm hoping to get them out SOON, but haven't had the time or inclination to build a goat run in this dang summer session in the nursing program. We had an entire 6 weeks to do a Pediatrics class that should have taken an entire Fall semester.

She has learned a new trick although I didn't get any awesome pics of it, since I took the pics myself! She now has skills such as give kisses, bow, lay down, flex (without any queue other than a finger pressed in her side), and will now paw and stand up on a prop! I want to eventually get her to where she can stand on a prop with all four feet like some of the trick horses can, although I'm not going to try that right now until I research how to teach her

On a slightly more negative note, I haven't been riding her very much at all this year and she is being a brat about flexing and riding with her head level with her poll, but I don't ride her enough to put that consistency on her to get her to make that a habit

Anyways, pics!! She has gotten a slight belly on her but I'm unsure whether its from hay or the foal. The mare with her has a bigger hay belly than Josie so it leaves questions to be answered!! Lol.
