Corgi Hill Luteson and Anvil's Solskinn will be offered at stud in 2017 for the introductory fee of $1,000. Booking fee of $350.
Both stallions will be bred only to Registered Norwegian Fjord horses only.
Due to the isolated and small nature of our farm, and my busy show and teaching schedule, we are only going to be offering frozen semen.
We will be working with a frozen semen expert. The stallions will be sent out for collection in May of 2017.
(If you are unfamiliar with the protocols of frozen semen I can give you references on request.)
Since both stallions are as yet unproven in the breeding shed, for 2017, both booking fee and breeding fee will be refundable if your chosen stallion has unsatisfactory semen evaluation when we send them to be collected.
Breeding contract will be otherwise "standard" with live foal guarantee. We will be selling you a breeding for 1 foal, not selling semen by the dose. (explaining this because some hot shot warmbloods do just sell you some straws with no guarantees)
If interested contract me for breeding contract.
There are those who have questioned why a mature woman would suddenly acquire 2 Fjord stallions. It all started when I began thinking of breeding my wonderful 2nd level dressage mare "Yeti" and there was nothing local that I wanted to breed to. With his fabulous movement, Luteson seemed the perfect cross, but Lisa only wanted to sell him. I also liked Sunny for his great temperament (since my previous stallion was a bit of a handful). So, when I went to try them out...with the intent of getting only one stallion, Lisa made me an offer I couldn't refuse, and I ended up with two!
I recently read that Fjord foal production is down 80% in the last decade. So I thought I would produce a foal or two to help the decline... and provide what is most likely my final generation as the 2018 foal crop will provide my old age companion.
There is nothing in this situation that can be considered permanent. We don't have the acreage to stockpile dozens of fjord foals. So if people don't breed to the stallions or buy the foals... a nice stallion makes a great gelding.
So if you are thinking about breeding to one of my boys, don't delay, this may be a limited opportunity.
