2002 Stallion Show Tour:  Web page has been updated with the details of the stallion show tour in Jan/Feb 2002.  This is even better than last year! (12/14/01)

2002 Semen Prices are here:  2002 semen prices are all in US $ this year due to the change to the Euro.  That should make it easier for everyone and the Euro is very close to the US $ in value.  First shipment is due around March of 2002, but much of the semen is in stock already.  Get your orders in early to guarantee what you want. Escpecially Orame and Indoctro who sell out every year. Polansky & Lancet is planned to be here late March/April. (11/25/01)

New Colt in Holland:  We have a new colt in Holland.  A black (Polansky - Goodtimes - Wahtamin xx) out of the famous Bria lines.  His great grandmother is a full sister to Olympic Barbria.  U will stay in Holland and be trained for the stallion selection.  Also we have acquired the Orame x Nimmerdor colt out of the elite mare Monalissa from Melissa Meryweather.  He will grow up with our Farrington colt and we will see how they are when they are 2 for stallion approvals.  We are very excited to participate in the stallion selections, but we know that of over 750 stallions presented this year, only 10-12 will likely be approved.  It is very hard, but I also still buy my lottery tickets. :-)  (11/25/01)

U and his dam.  Most of the horses were a bit fat this year in Holland.  The grass was very good this year! 12/02/01

 Stallion Show Tour:  Details on the stallion show tour will be posted soon.  They have been sent out in email.  We plan a clinic this year on preparation of the stallion for the show by Alexandra Wieberdink, author of the popular book in Holland on preparing the stallion.  They will be training our new colt.  Tour dates Jan 29th-Feb4th.  Email me for details.

Majestic Gaits Horses and Clients Winning at NEDA:  Regardless of the terrorism that happen to our country.  NEDA held a super dressage and breed show in Halifax, MA.  The American flag was at 1/2 mast and many of the winners donated their winnings to the Red Cross.  The crowd was the biggest I have seen and the loudest of cheers during the events.  The grounds were quiet, but many liked that we could grieve together for our countries loss and show that we continue regardless.  This was the first year that the Dutch held a special IBC class.  It was exciting as the top 5 horses were either ours or our clients that we have sold and found for them here and in Holland.  The scores were very close.  Beth Dzaugis won the class and beat us by 7/10th of a point.  Congrats to all the winners and our clients.  It is nice to know that we are doing the right things and we are all winning at the shows.  I hope that we can help you find the horse for winning too.   (9/21/01)

Fillies Fillies Fillies! We now have 6 foals all born at the farm here.  We have a farm full of super fillies for sale.  If you are looking for your future breeding prospect or filly for sport, this is the place to look.  Jenni had a fabulous Zeoliet filly (Uriah Road) who is flashy and movement is incredible.

Farrington x Ferro colt is born (UNO). Our Ferro mare had a Farrington colt premature.  We named him Uno.  Super temperament, nice neck set and catching up nicely.  Farrington x Ferro was the #2 mare in Holland last year, so we know this is a good cross.  Not for sale.

Aram I am very sad to announce that Aram had to be put down for a broken leg 6/10/01.  We miss him a lot.  Aram can not be replaced.  We do have his frozen semen available here for sale.  We will be searching for a new stallion to import for next year when we go to Holland in August.  We have a lot of VDL semen in stock now, so check out our Frozen semen link.  Prices are excellent right now and we can ship out very quickly if needed.

Aram Breeding Success! Aram has been doing super his first breeding season in the USA.  The reports are coming in and the vets love the quality of the semen and the mares are mostly getting in foal on the first try!  One vet reported that she inadvertantly left the semen on the slide overnight and when she looked at it in the morning it was 80% motility.  I am glad that everyone is pleased with semen, motility and the extender.  We have had our own fantastic success on our farm too.  I have not been able to get my approved thoroughbred mare Sherry in foal for the past 4 years.  She has had all sorts of complications, 18 years old and has a grade 3 uterus.  She is in foal to Aram on the first try!  Yahoo! (5-29-01)

Frozen Semen Success: Our mare Rose by Consul is in foal to Orame (Indoctro x Ramiro) via frozen semen from Holland.  She has been a little bit hard to get in foal the last 2 years.  She has this year 2 big cysts on her uterus and the vet thought that would be a big problem getting her in foal.  Well, Orame semen pervails!  She is in foal.  Orame frozen semen is sold out this  year, but you can get your order in for next year.  We also have lots of other great quality stallions in stock via frozen semen at great prices.  You pay the same stud fee as they pay in Holland.  We only add on the costs of importing and shipping.  See the Frozen Semen link for details. (5-29-01)
