Featured Blog: Breeding for ColorBlog RSS Feed

Color is among some of the earliest traits we selected in newly domesticated species (1). Today, color can be critical for registration and therefore, the value, of our horses. For example, in breeds like the Friesian (which requires true black) and the exotic Mangalarga Marchador (which does not allow cremellos or perlinos) color is more than an aesthetic preference, it is a breed requirement. Indeed, on average, presence of a spotting pattern doubles the value of an American Paint Horse Association (APHA) foal. For example, in 2006, the average price of an APHA registered yearling without a spotting pattern was $1540, while a yearling APHA registered horse with the tobiano pattern averaged $2803 (2).Read More
How long does it take to deplete stored sperm?
Depletion of aged stored sperm, that do not withstand the rigors of freezing very well, typically requires at least three “clean out” collections and sometimes more depending upon the individual stallion and how frequently he has recently been bred. Some stallions have a tendency to accumulate sperm in the reproductive ducts and require many more clean outs to acquire good quality sperm.
