We want to share your goal of producing a healthy quality foal.
We have a new Face Book page for our frozen semen that’s available for the UK & Europe.
Well, that was the easiest weaning we have ever had…
Maybe because we have four foals, maybe because our new stables have “windows” for them to interact?
Minimal “calling” from the mares and foals, quite honestly, we don’t know why the foals were actually not bothered, so we are just going to go with it!
Its been twelve days since our stallion DFR Patahas Redheart entered the Stallion AI centre, they collected from him seven times and he’s averaged 8 doses per collection, his semen is of a small quality being less than 10ml per collection, seriously concentrated!
It is a long process to get the health papers, both pre and post, we have two weeks to wait before he can have his first post collection CEM swabs taken, a further seven days before the second post CEM swabs and then a further seven days before we have the results. Only then will his frozen semen be validated for sale and shipment for the UK and Europe.
He certainly looks very well, the Stallion AI Team have taken great care of him. We are very happy to have him home although I believe from the staff reports he certainly enjoyed his holiday and behaved impeccably, as expected.
On his arrival home, he certainly had a lot to tell Reus…
Everyone likes a goody bag, such a nice touch 🙂
Education should be fun for foals and what ever we do is slow, repetitive and rewarding. The foals are now learning about pressure with ropes and they’re responding well.
Relentless is the eldest, so he’s the more advanced foal at 5 months old he’s learning to move his hind quarters away from the pressure applied with the rope, quick learner and a well deserved scratch was the reward.
Every day is a school day here at the stud, not only for the foals but me too.. Reading a horse is a gift and I try to read the outcome of a situation before it happens!
Teaching a foal to tie up takes time, we aim for stress free lessons with a positive result.
Here are our four foals at just over 16 weeks old, all happy and content being tied up!
Have a look just how chilled these foals are, videos on our Face Book Page.
These pictures are before we turned the mares and foals back to their paddock, but what was waiting outside was two air balloons, I don’t think the foals would have tied up after this event, great pictures with the sunset, they soon settled but they were all quite frightened by the noise of the burners!
