Going to be breeding LC this season, its my first breeding season standing a stallion, althouth not the first for my stallion, he is an old pro lol. My question is When should mares be brought to the farm to be served? Her first day of her cycle?? let me know ...
It depends. I fthe mare owners know when she is in then yes I recomend the first day of showing heat so that if she is not ready yet you wont miss it. Have the mare owners check with their vets and see when he thinks she will start so they know to look. I had one and they brought her what should have been only two days early..she did not come in for 15 days but my stallion and her both let me know when..she is confirmed in foal..Much will depend on what you are wanting too. Do you have the room/time to keep a mare for a full month? that way you breed her and make sure she settles or just breed her and let the owners take her home after all the breedings and have them check to make sure she settled.. I like them coming a few days early if I can to get them use to their suroundings and let her and my stallion court a bit..

Thanks for the info! Do to our set up at the moment, I prefer they stay about 7-8 days instead of a month or so, due to the fact that we are a little overloaded at the moment!lol hopefuly we can downsize some in the next few months. Thanks Again!
