When can the stallion be viewed?
Stallions can be viewed anytime by appointment.
What does NFFR mean?
This means No Foal Free Return, which means that we keep serving your mare until we get her in foal even if she has to come back the next year. If for any reason she cannot breed you can transfer the nomination to another mare.
Is there a difference between registered and graded? Why should I use a graded stallion?
All horses are now registered with a society as they all have to have a passport but this is entirely different from graded. At a grading, conformation & paces are checked for hereditary problems, their temperament for workability & no aggressive signs. Also they have to undergo a full stallion vetting which as well as soundness checks for hereditary problems, which cannot always be seen. A stallion, which is not graded, has not been vetted & therefore could be passing on all sorts of hereditary ailments. Horses are more than capable of injuring themselves without starting off with a problem! The other major problem with using a stallion that is not graded is that only graded stallions can issue breed society service certificates & without one of these you cannot get a verified breeding passport for your foal. So why would anyone use an ungraded stallion, that could be passing on all sorts of conformation faults!
