 Some Curly Horse facts about Vegas.............   He is a 11 year old Dominant Curly dark bay/white tobiano Missouri Fox Trotter stallion. In fact, he is one of only about 10 Curly MFT breeding stallions in the world!  He stands at 14.3.  In addition, he is one of very few who has nice colors and throws a beautiful variety of foals as shown in the photos below.  Most other curly stallions are sorrel in color.  His other great qualities are much more important than color, but color is a nice icing on top.  : )  Vegas comes from very rare bloodlines with two curly parents who are both from the Bashkir Curly Horse lineage. He is also one of very few Curly Fox Trotter breeding stallions in the world with no Walker's PrinceT.  This offers a unique bloodline as 85% of all Curly Fox Trotters originally came from these bloodlines.  Vegas is triple registered with the MFTHBA, ICHO (International Curly Horse Organization) and the SSHEBA. Vegas is one of the best quality Curly MFT breeding stallions in the world today.

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.  In other words, 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. Sometimes semen does not get to the recipient in a timely manner and the semen is no longer viable when the mare's eggs are ready to fertilize. 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.
