Two Thorougbreds available for lease in Northern California
I posted on the old thread a week or so ago, but I guess it’s more appropriate to post on this one… I’m offering two Thorougbred mares for breed lease in 2010.
I’m going to need to cut back in 2010, and am offering two TB mares for free breed lease. They can stay here and you just pay boarding (~200-$250 a month, its just feed costs, and that varies), or can go to your facility if it is safe.
Both mares are currently in foal, they both caught first try this year, and I have biopsy reports on both, they are both IIA’s, and both have Caslicks in (the farm they came from does that for all their mares…). Neither are riding sound (not due to breakdowns on the racetrack, both mares are unraced, freak accidents).
First is Queen Tyree (Huckster xx/ Riverman xx/ Nashua xx), or “Trea”. She’s a 1998 bay mare with a star. Bigger in type, nice bone. Jockey Club registered. Really a sweet, sweet mare. Produces substantial offspring with SUPER minds, I can send you photos and a couple videos if you email me. Produced one winner on the track, the others have gone onto be nice sporthorses with great jumps. Trea is about 16.2 hands. Has good hooves. Lives fairly well in a herd environment, I don’t put her in with super-dominant horses though, as I’m afraid she’d just get too beat up. Still needs to be presented to a registry for approval, she’s in foal to Redwine for 2010, and I was planning to present her to GOV with the foal… but if someone really wanted to go with ISR/OLD instead, that might be negotiable. I’ll pay for her Inspection with OLD NA or GOV… any other registry you would need to pay for. This truely is a super mare, a great find for sporthorse breeding. Had a pelvic fracture as a two year old. Healed fine, and has had five foals with absolutly no problems. Hence the ‘divet’ you see on her right hip area. She is due to foal May 18, 2010.
Kate’s Unique (Pembroke xx/ Prove Out xx/ Turn-To xx) is a lovely chestnut mare, also with awesome bloodlines. Sweet as can be. Around 16.1 hands, Jockey Club registered, and entered into the MMB of OLD/NA. Great hunter type, produces beautiful offspring. Gets along fine in a herd, but I don’t like putting her in with very dominant horses either. Gorgeous head, I have some photos of her offspring available too… produces very leggy foals from what I’ve seen (her foals have all been flashy and elegant). She is due to foal June 11, 2010.
Basically I’m not likely going to be able to breed them this year, and I would like for them both to have a job. I would pay for their feed & upkeep until the 2010 foals are weaned, then they could move to your facility, or you take over their upkeep costs. I usually wean at about 5 months, depending. I can trailer them to UC Davis, Pioneer, or Loomis Basin if you’d like to have them bred at any of those places… they are near me. I can get breeding records together if you’d like. Like I mentioned above, both took first try this year. I use Oxytocin as a standard protocal on all mares. I had a breeding soundness exam done on Katie before I got her this Spring, and would be more than happy to share that with anyone interested. I got Trea without having that done. Kate’s last foal was born in February 2009, Trea’s last foal was in Spring 2007.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
