At Brightstone Ranch we are specifically set up to care for stallions. Resident stallions have spacious stalls in the stallion barn and are turned out daily in large, grassy paddocks where they are able to exercise and have time to just be horses. Because we keep numbers of horses down on the ranch, we are able to provide more individual attention to those stallions that have special requirements to obtain peak breeding efficiency.
Broodmares are the center of every breeding program, they are afforded special attention here. Whether you are leaving a mare with us to be bred, or bringing her in for the day when she is ready to breed, or perhaps need a long-term residence for your mare, we do everything possible to provide a stress-free environment. As stress is reduced, a mare is able to relax and her systems function normally, allowing her to be much more productive and easier to breed.
We can freeze semen on your stallion for both domestic and international export. We are familiar with, and our facility meets all requirements for export to all foreign countries including federal quarantine. As a rule, all stallions being frozen for the first time are test frozen, then thawed and examined for motility. Mares will also be test bred with first freeze to ensure semen is sufficient quality to obtain pregnancy.
