GarretKaylaShi, I have been breeding Icelandics for years, but not to outside mares.

What an unanticipated answer that sure was...!! Holy smokes! And it almost looks as though your wrote the reply then looked back at it and added the last sentence. But thanks to be sure... nice laugh for the evening... that's usually the way it is around horses... and good luck to you.

Yes the last sentence was an after thought. I'm glad you got a chuckle out of it. The logistics of this breeding will be interesting to say the least, I'll have to dig a trench for the mare to stand in. I'm doing my best to talk myself out of, I don't really want to have the hassle of the whole thing.

Make sure to be specific. If you are offering a LFG, what does that entail? Does the foal have to stand and nurse, stay alive for 24 hours, stay alive for a week? What about colour, are you making any sort of guarantee about that? If yes, make sure that you are specific with that too. Specify absolutely everything - it is better to be too specific than to miss something important out.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Yep! Thought so about that last sentence....yer an honest gal! Logistics? What an interesting choice of words. Now you really got me fallin' outta the saddle laughin'...!!! Now I know those little Ice Island hosses are tuff as nails, but what if the little guy falls in the trench? And after he is in a state of blissful studly accomplishment how will he get back on the high ground? He'll be back side on the high ground and front side suspended in mid air if the mare decides to move. Tell ya one thing.... I reckon you got yer hands full with this deal. When you try to talk yourself out of such things as these that you get yourself into.... just exactly what process do you use? Bourbon or Rye? Just funnin' ya... Cowboy

Indeed. Here's a true story: a 2 year old, sold as a registered gelding and by three had himself an interesting collection of foals scattered about hither and yon until it was realized that he was not really a gelding but a cryptorchid stud. The registry was contacted, his designation changed from gelding to stallion after a running battle between the registry, the owner and the vet. The owner then happy with the value of a surprise stud at gelding price (sold him shortly thereafter). The vet unhappy and insisting that the cryptorchid stud must have surgery or be at risk of imminent death almost daily ( and all the other horror stories about crypts), and the registry insisting that a horse that produces progeny is a horse (stallion, in registry terms). The horse just wanted to have fun.
The horse won the whole pot in the end, became legally a horse again and went on to create many other horses and more than a decade later still lives on. Interestingly enough, few of the many who have visited with this particular horse (who is quite masculine in his appearance and carriage) ever realized he was a crypt. Cowboy

Crypts are unable to reproduce. Ever. The testicles are in the horses body, which is too hot temperature wise to produce viable sperm. One testicle must be descended in order to reproduce successfully.

If he fell in I'd just have to use my backhoe to get him out....I wouldn't really dig a trench that was joke.

Well... you're right in your last sentence. But that's it. Monorchid & cryptorchid stallions reproduce regularly. As you said correctly: One down is all it takes...
Matter of fact... in the world of racing thoroughbreds cryptorchidism is not uncommon and not considered disadvantageous by many breeders, owners and veterinarians; surgery is performed regularly and inexpensively to prevent risk of metastasis in event of tumor formation.
The behavioral characteristics of the stallion (to some) as well as the fact that with just one down the horse runs less impeded (many TB's are gelded due to diminished mobility at the rear quarters) are sought by many the breeder/trainer. Research indicates a potential of 1.5% 20 2% of all cryptorchid stallions of any breed suffer from anything other than too much attentionand controversy during normal lifespans, reproduce regularly with no significant indication of irregular male progeny and may be easy keepers to boot... Cowboy.
