Present and Future Breeding
Do you believe that breeding to older bloodlined stallions now available through Frozen Semen after death or high in age is worth it ?
What helps you choose a younger stallion of similar bloodines as compared to an older stud with like lines, but possibly closer “important” horses in the sire and dam lines.
Also when does a bloodline become outdated? With old stallions and frozen semen available we can continue to go back and tap into those old lines, but when is it just not worth it to breed back to fourth or fifth generation horses?
I have come up with this far fetched question due to the fact that over the years I have seen many new and quality stallions begin breeding and doing well. At the same time though there are still older and nice stallions available so I began wondering. And I think this question applies to all bloodines. Well I hope I made decent sense.
