Schockemohle_Totilas and PS SBSItalia is pleased to announce to the Italian sport horse breeders that we have reached a strategic agreement for managing the frozen semen of Paul Schockemöhle’s (photo left with Totilas) stallions. The agreement will be operational beginning in 2015 and was achieved thanks to the contribution of Mr. Schockemöhle’s Italian partner, Matteo Delmiglio. He will take care of all marketing aspects related to breeding sales while SBSItalia will be solely responsible for the logistical aspects regarding the import, storage and distribution of frozen semen from the entire stallion catalog of this prestigious German breeding farm. Also, breeders will be allowed to bring their mares to the two Italian SBS Affiliate Laboratories, SBSItalia and Centro di Riproduzione Equina Centauro, to be inseminated with frozen semen of particular stallions which are currently only available if bred at Paul Schockemöhle’s (P.S.) facility in Mühlen, Germany.

However, in the process of her search she came across a young stallion which trainer Tommy Serio had in for training. After watching him go for the first time she asked if they would sell him. After some negotiations she purchased the 1997 Bay Dutch warmblood stallion, Popeye K (photo left; Voltaire x Eloretta). Now she was in the breeding industry.
