Zion's Gait Curlies
(435) 635-1140

Vegas stands at about 14.3
hands, but his sire was 15
hands tall and his dam
stands at 15.2 hands.  Some
of his foals have grown much
taller than Vegas, so we
have a nice mix of heights
with him.  His first son, ZGC
Dallas, is currently 15.2 at 4
years old.

Both Vegas' parents are of
rare dominant Curly Fox
Trotter ancestry. Vegas gets
his curls from, Curly Jim, the
original Fox Trotting curly
stallion. In addition, Vegas
comes from wonderful old
style Fox Trotters and his
pedigree traces back to
impressive names such as
Rex's Golden Touch,
Walker's Merry Lad, Mr.
President, Danney Joe W.
and Zane Grey.

Equine Semen Thawing and Use Instructions

Is Cooled semen better than frozen?

Cooled semen is highly dependent on many factors. The quality of the semen produced at the time of collection varies
among some stallions. I.E. some stallions need to be "cleaned out" for a few days before the really good stuff arrives for
shipping. With frozen semen, they only freeze at top quality. The stallion will sit at the collection facility until his very
best semen arrives for freezing. Another huge factor is the shippers. I have heard of shippers not getting the package to
the recipient in a timely manner and the semen is no longer viable. Frozen semen is shipped in a mini nitrogen tank that
keeps the semen frozen solid for 2 weeks if needed. Delays in shipping is not an issue. The final problem is sometimes a
mare will hold onto an egg for longer than the vet suspects or releases the egg to soon and the semen is not available at
the perfect time. The frozen semen is sitting in a freezer waiting for the perfect moment for insemination. Frozen semen
solves all these problems and with the skilled handler is a much better choice and has a higher success rate than either
live cover or cooled.  Contact the most highly skilled repro vet in your area for more information.

 He is also the only Curly Fox Trotter
breeding stallion in the world, except
for one son, with no Walker's Prince
T.  This offers a unique bloodline as
90% of all Curly Fox Trotters
originally came from these

Every season we have a new
selection of his curly foals for sale.
Please contact us if you want to be
notified as each new foal arrives or
if you would like to speak with one of
our clients.  At this time we are able
to offer frozen semen for Vegas.

Now Vegas is living in France, but, we still have a
limited amount of frozen semen for sale!  See details


Vegas is a 8 year old dark
bay/white tobiano Dominant Curly
Missouri Fox Trotter stallion.  In
fact, he is one of only 6-7 Curly
MFT breeding stallions in the world!
Most of the others are sorrel in
color and most come from the more
common curly bloodlines.  Vegas'
bloodlines are very rare bloodlines.
He comes from two curly parents
who are both from the Bashkir Curly
Horse bloodlines.  Vegas is triple
registered with the MFTHBA, ICHO
(International Curly Horse
Organization) and the SSHEBA.
Vegas is, in our opinion, the best
quality Curly MFT breeding stallion
in the world today.  He continually
amazes us and the trainers who
work with him his high intelligence,
gentle nature and natural gait which
is among the smoothest and best
quality he has seen.  Not only is he
a quick learner, sweet natured and
naturally gaited, Vegas offers
straight legs, a strong, short top line
and nice strong bones to his foals.
What really amazes us, though, is
his foals.  They are fantastic and
remind us very much of him in so
many ways.  He consistently throws
naturally smooth gaited, sure footed
foals with intelligent and easily
trainable dispositions that perform a
variety of gaits.   He throws
superior quality fox trotting foals
when bred to more trotty or
diagonally gaited fox trotting mares.
Vegas has proven himself again
and again as a top quality MFT
breeding stallion.

Thank you Aline!

Vegas' new, permanent home is
now Brittany, France, BUT we
are still listed as owners on all
his registration papers which
allows us to utilize the frozen
semen we still have in storage.
Yes, you can still purchase
frozen semen and have your
very own Vegas foal.  Isn't
modern technology

Zion's Gait Curlies still owns a
limited amount of his very fertile
frozen semen so, until it's gone,
we can still offer stallion
services to you!
