We enter this season with two stallions in the world top ten sires of their sport, Grafenstolz in eventing and Kannan now in his 8th year in the top flight. Quintero went higher again into the 60’s with Namelus R, which for a stallion with such a small number of breedings early in his career, seriously shows his quality. In total we own five Top 100 stallions again this year, keeping us in the top five stallion owners in world breeding.
After four wonderful years in Rodez, we have moved back to our farm near Alencon, following a full renovation of houses and barn, to create a state of the art stallion station and insemination centre. At the time of writing, the building hasn’t quite finished, but we’ll be ready in time for the season.
In Ireland we saw increased inseminations across the board and have been very pleased with the results, so we’re putting more stallions over there for 2018: Coupe de Coeur from Ludger Beerbaum, Quintero for another season, Chello III with Osborne Farms in Carlow, Triomphe de Muze with Dr Kate Murray as well as Cormint and the legend, Parco with Drumhowan.
In the southern hemisphere, our reputation for quality customer service, conditions and stallions, continues to see us increase market share, as we expand our network of vet centres where we stock semen, to keep the cost of breeding down for our clients.
Fingers crossed for all you this year, as global breeding numbers come down each season, those of you who are brave enough will see the benefits of your good decisions and partnership with The Stallion Company, in the prices you achieve for your foals and youngstock.
All the best
