Junior Cutting Stallions (2015)

To be considered a Junior Stallion, a stallion had to rank among the top 100 in his discipline, cutting in this case, and had to have had five or fewer foal crops in the show pen. A stallions first foal crop could not have arrived before 2007 and the sire could have had no offspring show earnings prior to 2014 – the year that initial crop would have turned 3 and started showing.

Horse Breeding Season Is Here!

In Texas, May marks the high point for breeding season, and I hope yours has gone well so far. Equine reproduction is one of the aspects of veterinary medicine where technology has played a major role in helping Mother Nature along, but even so, there can still be some ups and downs when getting mares in foal. If you are in the predicament of being more than halfway through the season with nothing more to show than an empty uterus and a stack of bills, this may be of some use.
