Stanley Ranch Spanish Arabians

Here's a link to their website and it has their contact info. Molly is a lovely older woman, and her daughter Lisa lives with them on the ranch. Really sweet folks and they know their stuff.

When looking at stallions, I like to look for under $1000 stud fee. LFG. Most LFG I've seen have been 30 days with a vet's authorization. I feel like a "re-breeding" fee is a crock of crap. To pay $1000 and then have the foal die, and then have to pay another $250 to $500 bucks for a re-breed? I think not. That will turn me away.

I would prefer live cover honestly. And Mare care should be under $10 a day. It doesn't cost $20 a day to keep a horse, and her being there for 10 days or so? That's another $200 bucks.

Booking fee's must be included in the stud fee that I pay. Most booking fee's I've seen are $250 bucks.

Shipping fee's. When we tried doing AI, we put a $250 deposit on the equitainer, we got about $230 of that back once it was returned. I think the first collection was free, and then anymore collection would have been an extra $150 bucks.

Then of course we had vet bills to come out and check my mares ovulation via ultrasound. I think we also gave her a shot to ovulate her. And then we dropped her off at the vets and she stayed for the weekend and was inseminated over the weekend. It was easier on my vet to have her there as opposed to driving to our place 2 days in a row.

Chilly never took, and I was out over $1000 bucks...Live and learn.

What is your stallions name in the SHN payback program?
(you can PM me if you want :))

I go by show record and conformation,and pedigree mostly and price of course :) I prefer the older 3 circle body style :)

I like horses that have been successful and have successful get in whatever discipline I'm looking to use the foal for. I'm currently interested in Dressage so I like to see horses that have competed and won at a high level in dressage and that have Get that are doing well being shown.

Lol, ya. With my experience breeding to a top stud, the mare care was 15 dollars a day(she was there two months(900)), plus the cost of the breeding fee (2500), plus the cost of the drugs they administer(about 200), and she didn't take! This year when I take her back, I'm going to see where she is in her heat cycle, take her up there a couple days before ovulating, bring her back after she's been bred. The cost of mare care a day with a foal is going to be 20, which is way too expensive in my opinion! They are great people though!

Oh, I forgot to mention the dreaded rebreed fee is $600!

I'm sorry, but re-breed fees a load of crap. It is the stallion owner's duty to get your mare bred. That's why they stand him at stud. If they can't do it for any reason, whether it's the mare or the stud, I feel that the stud fee should be returned, minus the booking fee.

That's a lot of money to be out of...

Just my "in a perfect world" thinking... :) But honestly, that's how I would be if I had a stallion. LFG or your money back...

Ya, I think the reasoning behind the stallion's booking fee for the stallion I am going to rebreed to is that they have free ultrasounding, so that kind of balances it out. The ranch "my" stud is at actually has its own vet on staff now, so I think the results will be a heck of a lot better! Hopefully......
