It’s always exciting for us at SBS to hear about the success of breeding with frozen semen and the horses that have been produced via this method. We were particularly intrigued by an article published last summer at the beginning of the prestigious Aachen jumper show in Germany. On July 16, 2010 a then 12 year old Oldenburg gelding named Ferrari won the RWE Prize of North-Rhine Westphalia at the opening of Aachen. What makes this horse special, other than his ability, is that he was conceived via frozen semen. His influential sire, Furioso II, passed away 24 years ago, 11 years prior to the breeding of Ferrari and because of frozen semen these valuable genetics are still present today.
