A local stallion just had to be retired from breeding due to old age. I heard that several years ago (maybe 10+?) his owners had tried freezing his semen, but at that time he was condidered a poor "freezer", so there is no frozen seman for him. While it is too late for this guy, it made me wonder if enough advances have been made in the technology of freezing semen to warrant a second look on some of the poor freezers of the past?

There definitly has been great advances in frozen semen over the last 5 years. It is very important to take the stallion to a knowledgable person who is familar with the research that is being conducted.
