Hello everyone :-) I've just purchased another stallion, I'm so excited about him. Anyways, he's only ever done live cover... I don't do live cover here, ever. Too dangerous IMO. Anyways, this is another Welsh stallion, and I have a pony sized phantom at my house. I have a couple different options:
I can take him to the station where I've been having my other stallion collected, and have him trained there. Or I could have someone come to my house and train him in my phantom. He would be collected on my phantom to breed my mares, but would likely be collected at the station for shipping.

Is there anything in particuliar that I need to be aware of when having a stallion make the transition? As long as he's in my ownership, he will not be doing LC. My other stallion doesn't even need a tease mare anymore, I'd love to get the new one to be like that as well.

Would love any advice, my other stallion only ever did AI... so this will be a bit new to me :-)

There's not really anything to be aware of or prepare for other than the fairly obvious:
  • Make sure he's well behaved when being led, particularly in a sexual situation (maybe use him at home as a teaser at a good tease rail);
  • Make sure he is good about having his penis handled (you can get him used to this by being washed at home);
  • Most stallions will make the cross-over easily as long as they have good libido and are comfortable with humans being around when breeding;
  • There are exceptions - particularly older stallions that have pasture bred only;
  • Make sure that the people doing the training are experienced, competent, and patient.
I think that's about it! :-)
