Isn’t it just awesome that foaling coincides with the New Year! God truly does love horses; gestation is 11 months and breeding season starts the first week of February. Coincidence? Nope, God is a horseman, for sure!

Gratification can come in many ways. I think for most folks, it is the simple things that bring the most joy. Last week, during the NCHA Futurity, I made a trip over to the Quarter Horse News office to visit with the fine folks at Equi-Stat. I’m a stat junkie; numbers influence every decision I make. When it comes to breeding, I make my mating selections based off performance-based results. I have studied “The Master of Matings,” the great breeder Federico Tesio, and he was self-proclaimed “statistician breeder.” Not to get off course here, as I can when it comes to talking about breeding, but I love stats!

I’ve been contacted a lot over the past week since the last issue of the Quarter Horse News (QHN) Insider came out with the article written by Stacy Pigott titled “Breeding to Win.” Stacy originally wrote that article for the Dec. 15, 2014 issue of QHN. In it, we discussed numerous mating theories put into practice by some legendary horse breeders. Due to the inquires I've received over the past 10 days, I’ll share a little bit more on this topic today.

Whenever I am asked what I do for a living, my wife cringes when I pull out the, “I sell sperm for a living.” For those who don’t know me, my humor can be a bit dry as I tend to just leave that one sit there a bit. It always goes over well at church when meeting someone new…
